compute and apply optimized widths and heights (minimum estimated widths and heights for each table columns and rows in inches returned by function dim_pretty()).

This function is to be used when the table widths and heights should automatically be adjusted to fit the size of the content.

autofit(x, add_w = 0.1, add_h = 0.1, part = c("body", "header"), unit = "in")

Arguments

x

flextable object

add_w

extra width to add in inches

add_h

extra height to add in inches

part

partname of the table (one of 'all', 'body', 'header' or 'footer')

unit

unit for add_h and add_w, one of "in", "cm", "mm".

Note

This function is not related to 'Microsoft Word' Autofit feature.

line breaks

Soft returns (a line break in a paragraph) are not supported. Function autofit will return wrong results if \n are used (they will be considered as "").
