Question: how to adjust table column width in notes

How do you adjust the width or height of a cell for a table in Notes? The default seems to be equal widths for columns and varying depending on size of content for rows. If there is not a way to do this yet, it needs to be implemented ASAP. It's a basic function when using tables to format/organize content.

This doesn't really answer the question of how to customize a specific column to the size you want. For example, I copied a table into notes. The cells have a lot of text, and the length of the columns causes me to have to scroll. I want to shrink the column sizes so that everything is visible on the screen. How do I do that?
