Description lorrin 2003-05-11 09:00:43 UTC
"Space Rows Equally" makes all rows the height of the tallest row. It would be
nice to have a way to keep the table size fixed and allocate an equal proportion
to each row.

The current behavior is inconsistent with the "Space Columns Equally" function
which keeps the overall width of the table fixed.

I propose that in both cases the behavior be dependant on the current "Table:
Fixed" or "Table: Variable" mode. If in fixed mode, both space equally commands
should set to the size of the largest cell. If in fixed mode, both space equally
commands should allocate proportionally without changing the table size.

I can confirm the behavior (RH9/1.1.0), but I think this might be an

If the row size is not set to that of the highest row, what happens to
the additional text in that row?  Are you expecting that the row sizes
would be adjusted to fit the size of the original table, and that the
font sizing and spacing would be adjusted accordingly?  I believe Word
Perfect has a feature similar to this -- is this what you are looking

You make a good point about what to do if the text doesn't fit. I do
not think the feature should go so far as to shrink the text down.

I'd suggest one of the following:
* Shrink the row with the greatest minimum height to that minimum
height. Make all other rows have this height as well.

* Do as above, but don't let the table shink to less than its current
