I am a frequent Lyx user and first of all would like to thank the team for
this wonderful software!

It usually deals with tables very well, but I noticed that setting column
width may yield a correct PDF output but an incorrect display on screen in
the User Interface. More precisely, selecting a cell in the last column of
my table hides the first one and part of the second, making it difficult to
figure out my location in the table.

I saw that adding horizontal scroll bars in tables had been discussed at
some point (http://wiki.lyx.org/GSoC/HorizontalScrollbar), but I was
wondering about its progress.Moreover, I also looked at Local Layouts, but
could not figure out how to manually set the size of the columns in the
user interface.

Actually, what I would like to do is to set the column width on the user
interface on the one hand, and to keep on setting it for Latex through the
standard dialog box on the other, so that even though the display in the UI
is not exactly what it will be in the output doc (which is in fact already
the case as of today), the document is easily edited in the UI and
correctly generated. Do you think this is feasible easily with the current
Lyx version (I'm using 2.1.2 on Debian)?

Thanks in advance,
