Hey everyone,

Is there a way to get org to wrap text within a table cell? I want to be
able to enter long text entries into cells without expanding column width.

Also, is there a way to merge cells—say, three cells vertically?

Finally, orgtbl-mode is broken in markdown-mode. Does anyone know a
solution?

Thanks,
Pater

This question sounded familiar, so I dug up this ancient post from the
list which offers some answers:

http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/10478

The link to the manual in the email is broken. The relevant section of
the manual is:

3.2 Column width and alignment
(info "(org) Column width and alignment")

Best,
Matt

I don't think you can do this via org. Whenever I have tables of any
complexity, I end up doing them manually with tabular inside a
#+begin_latex section. If you find a solution, I'd love to hear it!
Perhaps there's a quicker way of using org-table placeholders and then
doing some quick tweak to the .tex file generated rather than me doing
the whole thing in LaTeX.


Good luck,
John
