[reportlab-users] ReportLab Table Option

Thanks, Andy

Now, the only issue I have is with formatting.

1. If I let the rows choose their own size based on the largest column
height, then other pages do not have knowledge of that height. Therefore I
get different row heights for columns on different pages. That is probably
confusing; I attached the pdf for clarity. If I fix the row heights and the
fonts, then oftentimes the paragraphs do not fit since, due to word
wrapping, a row label may take several lines or it may take a single line.
So I am not sure what the best formatting solution

2. I want to print the the table on 11 x 17 ledger paper. I specify those
dimensions through SimpleDocTemplate. However, the pdf I get first the
whole table onto 8.5 x 11 (I can print the whole table on an 8.5 x 11 sheet
without it being cut off). Also, the table has padding around it. I would
like to get rid of this padding.

Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
