First off, thank you for an incredible tool. I don’t regret using money to buy asdocx rather than just using asdoc.
Is it possible to add the option to fit all exported tables to window, so this can be added to asdocx_default.ado?Dr. Attaullah ShahKeymasterJuly 28, 2021 at 2:06 pmPost count: 106
I have updated asdocx and have added option
table_layout. First update asdocx.
Table layout : auto, autofit , fixed
means the width is the same for all columns in the table. It is similar to the ‘Fixed-Column Width‘ in MS Word.
autois specified, the column width automatically resizes to fit the window. It is similar to ‘AutoFit-Window‘ in MS Word
autofitis specified, the table width is determined by the overall table layout algorithm, which automatically resizes the column width to fit the contents. In MS Word parlance, it is similar to ‘AutoFit-Contents‘ .
The default is layout(fixed). To set table layout to
autopermanently , change the following line in the
global table_layout "fixed"
global table_layout "auto"
If you want to change it just for a specific table or in the current Stata session, then use the option
asdocx sum AD TD ED FD ta, detail replace table_layout(auto) fs(10)

Thank you so much. ! This is a great update
I have to new questions/suggestions about formatting tables:
1. Is it possible to format the last line showing “total” in a contingency table to bold and with a visible black line at the very bottom of this cell? ( I like to write notes about the tables under the table, but seperated by such a line)
2. is it possible to allow for the table title to be formatted in heading1 heading2 etc…?
By the way, thank you for great support. You have already replied to several of my posts and thus confirmed my choice of paying for using the ado, even thou this is something that I don’t do often. But its nice with the possibility of support and help once in a while regarding the use of the program, since is so versatile. THANK you!Rune LomholtParticipantJuly 30, 2021 at 7:53 amPost count: 19
just ignore the first questions in this post.
I have another question instead:
does the setting
global header_row_fontbold 1in the asdocx_defaults.ado not supposed to bold the text in the header row that can also be shaded with
global header_row_background FFFFFF } else global header_row_background DCDCDC?
If yes, then it is not working for me. Do you now why this is so?Dr. Attaullah ShahKeymasterJuly 31, 2021 at 10:45 amPost count: 106
I had not activated the italic and bold options for the title row. They are now active. Do update asdocx before checking these options.
I appreciate your feedback. Concerning this service and asdocx as being a premium version of asdoc, I am committed to make it even better. asdocx community will play a significant role in its future success. Therefore, existing members are requested to spread the word about asdocx. As the community grows, the revenue stream will make more sense, leading to more features and development ($9.99 being the annual fee will make an impact only if members grow to around a 1000 or more.)
