Placement of table and text - Writer

Postby Zyril » Wed Oct 27, 2010 2:48 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm kinda new to OpenOffice, I haven't needed it as much as I do at the moment. I migrated from Windows to Linux some time ago, and by that started to work with OpenOffice for simple text tasks. Now I need some help with tables I am using in a document. This is probably a very silly question, but I just get more frustrated about it as I look everywhere in Writer, so I thought I'd ask for help.

I am writing documents containing alot of text and tables. What I want to be able to do is set the table placement settings to "tight", like you can do with pictures. I want to be able to write text alongside the table, like having a fixed position for the table and then keep writing the text on the side of it. I just can't figure out how to accomplish this!!!

I'm glad for any help I can get! =)

Kind regards,
OpenOffice 3.2 on Ubuntu 10.10
