Dashboards & Visualizations

How do you force two different panels with the same columns to align horizontally?

I have two panels above and below each other in a dashboard. Let's say the columns are "Name" and "Description in both panels. Depending on what I assume is the length of the raw text inside the fields I just described, the width between columns changes, making both panels misalign with each other.

What I want is to edit the dashboard to force the columns into a constant ratio so it looks clean when scrolling down. Say something like 20% of the space for the "Name" field and 80% of the space for the "Description" field.

Is this possible? I see answers on here that aligns text within the boxes, but not ones that align the actual width of each column.

You can do 1 of 2 things to expand the field widths to the maximum:
1: Add an event with artificial values that are very long, something like ... | append | eval Name="12345678901234567890", Description="12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890"
2: Pad your field names with whitespace to make them artifically wide, something like ... | rename Name AS " Name", Description AS " Description"
