How can we improve InDesign?

Need option for auto-fit in table cell style

When I reduce the text size in table, the rows height not fit automatically and its manual work to fit the each row for whole table. It's make easier if we have option to fit the cell height automatically based on content like Object style "Auto-Size"option.

    i don't really see the problem here? since you're talking about the HEIGHT - this already fits automatically based on the content if you set the height to "minimum" instead of "exact" in my german version it's "Genau" and "Mindestens".

    For the Width i agree with @Barb Binder - the current options are horrible - Tables can't even autofit to textframes without a script. :|

    Adding row height controls to cell styles would be a great addition to InDesign.

    Also, FrameMaker has a column resize option that I miss in InDesign—where you can select a column and ask Fm to scan the entire column (potentially across multiple pages) and size the column to fit the widest entry. It's really useful for the stub.
