[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

noWrap (Don't Wrap Cell Content)

This element specifies how this table cell shall be laid out when the parent table is displayed in a document. This setting only affects the behavior of the cell when the tblLayout for this row (§17.4.53; §17.4.54) is set to use the auto algorithm.

This setting shall be interpreted in the context of the tcW element (§17.4.72) as follows:

  • If the table cell width has a type attribute value of fixed, then this element specifies that that this table cell shall never be smaller than that fixed value when other cells on the line are not at their absolute minimum width.

  • If the table cell width has a type attribute value of pct or auto, then this element specifies that when running the auto fit algorithm, the contents of that this table cell shall be treated as though they have no breaking characters (the contents should be treated as a single contiguous non-breaking string)

If this element is omitted, then cell content shall be allowed to wrap (the cell can be shrunk as needed if it is a fixed preferred width value, and the contents shall be treated as having breaking characters if it is a percentage or automatic width value).

[Example: Consider the following three row by three column WordprocessingML table:

In this table, each cell has a fixed preferred width of (3427 twentieths of a point), and the tblLayout for this row (§17.4.53; §17.4.54) is set to use the auto algorithm. If a long non breaking string is added to the middle row, as follows, the two cells are adjusted to override their preferences and accommodate the string:


However, if the first table cell has the noWrap element present as follows:


The noWrap element specifies that because it is a fixed width cell, that cell shall not be collapsed beyond its original size until all other cells are at their minimum size, so in this example the cell maintains its width:
