3021064 - The cell space is automatically changed when editing story in SAP analytics Cloud (SAC)


The cell space in table is changed automatically when clicking the edit button in the story of SAC


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2020.21.14 (SAC)
  • Live connection of HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create story based on live HANA cloud model.
  2. Create table with Chinese characters.
  3. Check option "Responsive / flexible column width" for table and "wrap" setting for cell.
  4. When opening the story in view mode, the cell space is much larger than edit mode.


Using a "Responsive page" which means that when the size of the page changes (which it does when switching to edit mode) a re-calculation of the column widths is  triggered. Due to using "Wrap" and "Responsive/Flexible Column Widths" at the same time can lead to unexpected behaviour.


Switch table to use "Beta table" which can bring improvements regardig the "Responsive/ flexible column width".
