Regarding converting hmxz files to PDF

Unread postby Vanitha R » Thu Jul 05, 2018 7:26 am

hi team,

when I convert hmxz files to PDF , my table columns width is reduced. Can you please let me know how to retain the width as it does look odd.

Hi Vanitha,

Even when it is displayed on a computer screen, a PDF is really just a representation of a printout on a piece of paper. The dimensions of paper do not change. If your columns add up to a wider width than the paper they will not fit. It's the same as trying to pour two liters of water into a one-liter bottle. Something is going to overflow. 8)

See this chapter in the help to learn how to manage column widths in tables for PDF: ... widths.htm
