Hi S_Line, 
Greetings from Syncfusion support. 
Currently, we didn’t provide option to edit table width, cellpadding from our end. But you can customize the cellpadding and cell spacing by adding CSS from application end as follows 
    .e-richtexteditor .e-rte-content .e-content .e-rte-table { 
      border-spacing: 5px; 
      border-collapse: separate; 
    .e-richtexteditor .e-rte-content .e-content .e-rte-table td { 
      padding: 5px; 
We have prepared sample for reference, check the below link

Hi S_Line, 
Sorry for the confusion. 
Query: But, how about this screen (https://ej2.syncfusion.com/javascript/documentation/rich-text-editor/images/table_properties.png), how can i access it? 
We can enable this option by configuring TableEditProperties in table collection of quickToolbarSettings API as follows 
var defaultRTE = new ej.richtexteditor.RichTextEditor({ 
  quickToolbarSettings: { 
    table: ['TableHeader', 'TableRows', 'TableColumns', 'BackgroundColor', '-', 'TableRemove', 'Alignments', 'TableCellVerticalAlign', 'Styles', 'TableEditProperties'] 
Currently, edit properties dialog via provided cellpadding, cellspacing value applied to the table, due to control styles overriding it not working with Table. Already we have logged internal bug as “Table cellpadding, cellspacing customization not working in RichTextEditor” for this issue, we will fix and include in 2019 Volume 4 beta release which is scheduled on first week of December. 
You can now track the current status of your request, review the proposed resolution timeline, and contact us for any further inquiries through this feedback link
