Pandoc is working great at the moment, but I've got a problem for large tables. Most of the time the tables get rendered outside of the page. I know it has something to do with p|cm=8 or something, but I really have NO clue where to put it ;p.

My default.latex contains if(tables):


Any chance to get some advice? :)

Thnx in advance.

Your question is really too vague to answer but if you go

  aaaa & bbb\\

You will get a two column table, with the first column text being 3cm wide and the second column text being 4cm wide (with some default padding around the columns).

  • Im creating the tables out of a HTML source through Pandoc. Sometimes table's are to large for the page itself and the table is shown out of the page, so I'm not creating the table itself, but I want to configure it throughout the default.latex template of Pandoc. Jun 12, 2013 at 7:04
  • @user2456177 that seems to be a pandoc question rather than a latex one so is probably off topic for this site, either way I haven't used pandoc so I can't help with that. Jun 12, 2013 at 7:39
