I'm trying to paste a few cells from my spreadsheet into my document. The problem is that the spreadsheet never fits correctly into the document, even though all the cells are smaller than the space available in the document (yes, including width-wise). So there should be plenty of room for it to fit, but some cells are changed when pasted into the document to be wider and others narrower.

How do I avoid this?

    Could you paste a screenshot of the problem? It would also help if you could share the document itself, but it's perfectly understandable if you don't want to do that. Commented Jan 20, 2014 at 9:54
  • Both are available for public viewing. On the documents, scroll down to the bottom to see where I pasted it. docs.google.com/document/d/…

I do not get what the fuss is about. Here's a snip from the spreadsheet:

and here is a snip from the the document after copy and pasting the above:

This is a snip of part of what OP shows in link to document in Comment:

Maybe something has changed since the Q was posted.
