How to adjust columns of text / images in a blog post

I'm trying to create a blog post with a table in it. The table contains text and images - see clip below. When I paste from Word, the columns, which are equally sized in Word, are unequal in width in the post.

 

I tried using the <col width = x> which worked when I went back to rich text mode but was rejected when I saved draft.

 

Any way to fix the column width problem?

You may want to open a support ticket and request that "Paste From Word" be enabled in the post editor. This function helps strip out some of the funkiness from Word on the original paste. I'm not sure if it will resolve your specific issue, but it can't hurt.

We have Paste From Word. I also checked the HTML directly. But thanks and for the note about TinyMCE.

The TinyMCE editor works as expected. 

 

How do I use TinyMCE with Lithium?

@MichaelAtHP Lithium is using TinyMCE! The problem might be due to your community style (CSS), which will treat your document differently. I think it's worth logging a case with Lithium support to double check.
