When a table is displayed in a document, it can either be displayed using a fixed width or autofit layout algorithm:

  • fixed: uses fixed widths for columns. The width of the table is not changed regardless of the contents of the cells.

  • autofit: uses the contents of each cell and the table width to determine the final column widths.

table_layout(type = "autofit")



'autofit' or 'fixed' algorithm. Default to 'autofit'.
