I try to modify the distance between lines in a cell with a longer text which includes line breaks. I tried
tab_options( data_row.padding = px(.5) )
however this only reduces the vertical space between the first/last line and the cell's border.
What I am looking for is a way to decrease the space between the lines, i.e. to make the table more compact.
library(tidyverse) library(gt) mtcars <- mtcars %>% mutate(text="long text with line breaks\nlong text with linebreaks\nlong text with linebreaks") mtcars %>% tibble::rownames_to_column(., var = "name") %>% select(name, text) %>% gt() %>% gt::tab_header(., title="row padding .5") %>% tab_options( data_row.padding = px(.5) )
Note that I am producing this table as part of a blog/distill post.
Here's the code/result of what I tried.
