Table alignment in WordPress 4.1.7

Reported by: jbrule Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.1.6
Component: TinyMCE Keywords: dev-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


We are having issues working with tables that have an alignment set. The table cells are not growing to meet the size of the table they are contained in. It looks like the issue has to do with the .aligncenter{ display:block rule } rule. With that disabled the table displays correctly in the editor.

How to reproduce
# Create a table using the table tool.
# Enter text into each of the cells
# Select the table and go to Edit Table Properties and select "center" alignment.

I can't find a table tool in plain WordPress visual editor, but a table tool appears after installing TinyMCE Advanced plugin.

That in place I can reproduce this in trunk (4.4-alpha-33955).

Testing the same alignment in the demo at TicyMCE home http://www.tinymce.com/ with TinyMCE 4.2.5 does not produce the problem.

So I really don't know if this should be classified as bug in core, TinyMCE Advanced plugin or upstream TinyMCE.

For the time being I have worked around the issue by adding the following to my theme's editor-style.css file

table.alignleft, table.aligncenter, table.alignright{
td.alignleft, td.aligncenter, td.alignright{

Agreed with @knutsp from 3 years ago... haha Closing this as invalid as it is not Core WordPress.
