Since the table capsule doesn't allow for columns of varying widths, some long words have to wrap inside the cell. Is there any way to force a break at a specific point? In one, I used a hyphen, then < Enter > and it divided at that point. I tried the same thing in another cell, and it didn't work. Any suggestions?
EDITED: This post originally hid " < Enter > " - I guess because I did not include spaces and it was read as html tags. I assume.
This may help you out

I appreciate the link, but I certainly didn't see any answer to my question in that blog. Did I overlook something?
Sorry I thought maybe if you imported a table from excel you may find it easier. I just went into one of my hubs to see if I could change the widths but I was unable to do so.
Thanks for trying!
I noticed in the example that they gave in the blog post that the words wrapped in the cells. But there were obvious spaces that created the line breaks. I think there must be a way to do what I want; I just haven't found it yet.
I've only tried to use a table a few times, and I've given up every time!
Actually, that's not true - I do have one table on my Sevillanas Hub,and I needed the HubPages team's help to get it to work.
Bottom line - don't use a table unless you really have to, they're just a headache!!
Thanks, Marisa - I think!
I don't use them often, and for most of the things I use them for they work just fine. Maybe I just need to contact the staff directly about this. I really had hoped one of them would see this thread and add their two cents' worth.
I add table to some of my hubs, but I don't know how to change the width. That would be nice. If you find out how, please do share. Thanks.
I'm pretty sure that the width cannot be changed, period. What I'm trying to do is to force the word wrapping inside the cell to break a word at the point where I want it to break. I have my own idea about the way I want the words to look. What's so odd is that I was able to create one break the way I want it, but the others are not cooperating, even though I'm doing the same thing.

Can you change the column width of the columns of the table capsule? It seems there is no option for doing that. In my opinion it is a must feature for a table.

The table capsule does not appear to be working. It won't allow a file to be uploaded.
