The opt Command (Advanced)

There is an opt command that can be included in a table/grid definition, to override default settings. The opt(ions) command should be the first entry in the table/grid definition.
The opt command can contain the following options (separated by semicolons).
Minimum size options
w=40 Sets the minimum width of columns, in millimetres.
