Hello everyone, 

Is it possible to do word wrapping inside org table as MS Word did? I know
that one table mode can do this. (http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/TableMode)

Best wishes,
Yu Zhao

I don't believe you can do word wrapping within a single field and
still preserve the integrity of the field, since, as I understand it,
a field in org-tbl is limited to a single line.

But you can "wrap" a long field for the sake of appearance. For
instance if you have the following table:

,----
| 
| | table | this is a long field with a lot of text that stretches on and on |
|
`----

You can select the text in the second column as a region and type C-u
5 M-RET, which will reformat the text to fill five rows. (Change the
prefix argument to get more or fewer rows.)

,----
| 
| | table | this is a long |
| |       | field with a   |
| |       | lot of text    |
| |       | that stretches |
| |       | on and on      |
| 
`----

Your other option is to create narrow columns that hide the full text
in a column. See this page of the manual:

http://orgmode.org/manual/Narrow-columns.html#Narrow-columns

Best,
Matt

Hi everyone,

Regarding wrapping of columns in tables, I noticed that one of the
shortcuts listed in the manual[1] no longer works.

The manual says you can use either M-RET or C-c C-q to "wrap several
fields in a column".

The latter keybinding, however, takes you to the headline and
activates org-set-tags-command. 

Thanks,
Matt
