Configuring default column widths, by e.g. using template files
Submitted by and..@..il.com
I have recently started using gnumeric, and am overall pretty happy with the software so far. There is one particular feature, however, which I believe is missing and would make life much easier.
I use gnumeric to have a quick overview of tab-separated log files my project spits out, and these have a pretty predictable structure; long first column and relatively shorter columns holding numerical values. When I open these files with gnumeric (by double clicking) the columns I get are all of the default size (64pts), which I think is a bit too narrow for my use.
I have looked over the resources and haven't found a way to manipulate/configure the default column size. As a matter of fact I got some replies on the IRC channel that this is most likely a hard-coded default in the code. I think it would be nice to be able to configure this. Optimally I think a template file which dictates the default formatting configuration would be really nice. This way one could define a particular look as default, e.g.:
- 1st column = 256 pt
- 2nd-4th col = 128 pt
- rest = 64 pt
What is the likelihood of having a feature like this in the foreseeable future? Regards,
