I added a spreadsheet to a pages document and now I want to reduce the column width so that it fits the content (text).


I tried it the other way around: I added very small columns and then chose the adjust-automatically-option in informations. This worked, the columns became broader and matched the text.


Now I got a lot of spreadsheets which columns are too broad. When choosing adjust-automatically just nothing happens. What can I do?


Sorry if this sounds a little weird, I'm using English seldom at time and don't know which words to choose to describe my problem properly. Hope someone can help me nevertheless?
