    Hello,

    I’m pretty new to all this and could use some help! (I’m not a web designer, just workin on my own blog) Is there a way to resize the column widths of table and column blocks to something like 25% and 75% within the new WordPress editor?

    Here’s what I’m stuck on:

    image

    The tables and column blocks always seem to be even – like two columns locked at 50%/50%. Three would be 33%/33%/33%. etc

    I don’t really want the text to flow around the image, I’m trying to get this text to flow straight down evenly (which is why I’m using column blocks). But I can’t figure out how to make the column the image is in 25% and the column the text is in 75%.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi there,

    if you select the individual column, in the Settings Sidebar (Right Hand Side) you can adjust its width.

    Hi David,

    Thanks, I was hoping it was something simple. Unfortunately, I’m still not seeing it though, would you mind pasting a screenshot of the setting you’re referring to?

    I’m seeing things like # of columns, but nothing about width, thanks again!

    You need to make sure you have the individual column selected as opposed to the Columns Block:

    Ok, figured it out. Writing this for future folks pulling their hair out!

    Wordpress 5.2.4 does not contain the column width slider by default – you have to install the Gutenberg plugin itself.

    Looks like they’ll update it in WordPress 5.3, but for now we have to use the plugin

    Aah sorry – yes i forget that i always have the latest plugin installed and 5.3 hasn’t landed.
    Glad you got it resolved.
