Default Change the size of a column width once a merge tag is in there

Hi there

I have made a table to enter text into using word 365 and for the life of me I cannot work out how to move the columns to the correct sizes after copying text into it. I have merge tags which I distorting the column sizers, the tags are way bigger than the actual text that will go in there. How do I fix this? I can't seem to drag the column to the correct size.

Set the width before you insert the content and make the cell columns fixed width, so they don't change with the content. If you find that hard to work with, create the content outside the table and paste it into the cell.
