I see a lot of posts where people are using HTML in Rich Text components when they have been warned not to, because Glide says they may not support it in a future Glide release.
One of the complaints is the limitations of displaying table data and how you can’t get the spacing to span the full width of the screen. IF you know in advance the exact column sizes you want, and the destination devices screen width, you can use the following work around to get pretty close to what you can get by using HTML.
The trick is to use transparent png’s to accomplish the spacing. In the below example I created 2 pngs, one 165x1 and the other 100x1. I am using these in the title area of the markdown table. Here is the result:
Here is the code:

Copy and paste it into Glide to see the results in an app. BTW I used Gimp to create the png’s. Time to create the png and upload to imgur was under 1 min each.
