ColumnWidths

FilledSmallSquare ColumnWidths is an option for GridBox which specifies the widths of columns in ems.

FilledSmallSquare The default setting is ColumnWidths->Automatic, specifying that all columns should be made wide enough to fit their contents without breaking onto multiple lines.

FilledSmallSquare ColumnWidths->n uses column widths equal to n times the current font size—usually about n times the width of an M in the current font.

FilledSmallSquare ColumnWidths->, , ... can be used to specify different widths for different columns. If there are more columns than entries in this list, then the last element of the list is used repeatedly for the remaining columns.

FilledSmallSquare An explicit setting for ColumnWidths overrides ColumnsEqual->True.
