How can we improve InDesign?

Add the possibility to set cell/line/row height and width in tableformats

We have a lot of tables in our brochures which have to fit in the grid.

It would save a lot of time if I could set, at least, the height of a line as a standard in the table format.

At the moment I have select every table and enter the value. If cells are connected in a row, you have to disconnect them to set the height value. Not very comfortable.

    Yessss, I do lots of huge, multipage, horrendous tables. I would like to be able to set the height of a row with a style. However, I can see it might be tricky because I have multiple paragraph styles within a row, and one would need to set the height for each cell style and if they were not all the same then ID would probably crash. The only way I see to do it is to have the text style, size style and to add an extra wrinkle, the stroke style separated, then to be able to combine options out of the three to create unique cell styles.

    Too hard - I hope not.
