New UX - column's width for grids / worksheets

It would be great if it's possible to define the column's width by numbers (% or px). It's a very time-consuming exercise to match it manually if you have similar columns in the same module or similar modules on a page:

    I also support the idea. This functionality was available in the old UX and was very helpful.

    I have found that if you point the NUX Grid to a saved view, the default column width can be adjusted from the classic. After selecting View -> Edit -> Module Views -> Select View -> Refresh, then the column sizing takes on the point setting from the classic. I note that the text size in the NUX is slightly larger than the sizing in the Classic, so a 45 pt sizing in the Classic might work great, but I need to set it to 60 pt so that the numbers are not cut-off when viewing in the NUX.

    Definitely support this idea!

    While we currently do have the workaround of using saved views to achieve this, we lose the conditional formatting functionality present in the new UX.

    Would be good if we can have the best of both worlds!

    I support this, being able to manually adjust is nice, but also setting some default widths as a starting point would be really nice.

    Yes, totally agree.

    Truly, what's up wtih the columns widths?! It's all over the place and you end up with some weird looking tables

    As a page builder, it would be great to have in the New UX a Colums Settings menu similar to the one we have in the model building environment, so when creating a board with multiple tables, it is easier to make the column width match between the tables by inputting a specific px width.

    I’ll know this is successful when I am able to set precisely with a px value the column width of a table.

    Oh, it's great that it's in a roadmap.

    I'm looking forward to having this functionality in NUX. Trying to make columns equal by dragging their borders is a nightmare and a lot of harm to vision. Of course we can make a saved view and use it instead of custom view but custom view is so convenient and it's such a pity not to use it.

    Hope that road to this functionality won't be long and managing column width in NUX will become as comfortable as in 'old model building experience'.

    Essentially the same request/idea presented a full year before this post: Link 

    That being said, this idea has a better explanation/clarity of the concept(s).

    Why is there not a 'default' that you can change for mobile/tablet and one for desktop.

    Total miss in my opinion of being able to leverage the new UX and classic as mobile and desktop OR allowing for mobile friendly with the new UX and having alternative defaults for each type of setting

    Yes please, we need this!

    Will this only be in the builder mode or for the user as well? We would love to give the user the ability to change column size that persist after logging off like the classic UX.
