2877379 - Table cell padding in SAP JAM wikis and blogs do not reflect in the UI editor


  • When adding a table in a Wiki or blog, under Table Properties, the "Cell Padding" field does not work
  • No space in the table even if cell padding field is filled out

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enter JAM instance > Navigate to a JAM group
  2. Create or edit a wiki or blog
  3. Add a table via the Table Icon
  4. Under the Table icon, choose "Table Properties" > General tab
  5. Enter a number in the Cell Padding field > Click OK
  6. Notice that there is no space in the table even if cell padding is filled out


The table is designed with tinyMCE (online rich-text editor) that is having problems with cell padding features being reflected in the UI.


As a workaround, add or edit the cell padding under View > Source Code

e.g. If you want to set cellpadding to 10px, add “padding: 10px” to each <td style=...>

Permanent fix will depend on the next upgrade from tinyMCE application.
