Hi all, we are trying to re-create the Company's R&D chart (listing projects that are in different phases in each column). So naturally, you would think that creating a table with 4 column would do. However, due to the fact some of the projects have very long name, in order to show it correctly, we need to heighten the row given limited column width, which is not the best thing to do consider the project in the next column might not need the extra height, and it will show up as having inconsistent spacing.
As a solution, we created 4 separate table right next to each other, representing each column, and this way if we heighten a row in a column, it will not impact the other columns. The strategy worked out great and prints out beautifully in PDF. However, when we convert it to XBRL via XBRL preview or Word, the 4 tables that are close to each other won't stay next to each other, instead, they basically go after each other not next to each other, which becomes unpresentable.
Have anyone encountered issues like this before? I wouldn't mind making it a single table, but again the spacing will be inconsistent if certain project in a given column needs heightened row. Someone with exceptional Word doc skill may be able to create column like effect without creating a table, which might be the solution. I am open to all suggestions :)
Thank you for your time.
