Description

Tables with fixed column widths and 'wrap text' options have the last word placed on a new line consistently. This rather makes the wrap text option redundant as it cannot be used in any professional report.

I don't actually have a copy of 2.18 any more, but I have just found this old Stack Exchange Question, so it seems to have been a problem back in August 2017.

Just for anyone coming across this dealing with the same problem, a rather messy workaround is to always make sure long text is suffixed with a double space. Layout interprets the second space as a new word and puts it on it's own line. You get a line break at the end of each section, but it's better than a mysterious trailing word.
