  2. Need a Tab with GREP/Style Change setting instead of just decimal

    SHORT DESCRIPTION: A new type of tab which will accept multiple align characters in a GREP-like statement and/or align on a style change.

    The video provides a longer description. In tables involving figures and footnotes, a decimal tab is often not enough. What if the footnote is a number, or the footnote is surrounded by parenthesis? These are things which our clients specify for tables in the financial reporting industry, but apply to other industries as well.

    If we could specify multiple characters to align upon, in a GREP-like "or" statement, that would help. Or the ability to align on…

  3. Strokes > Content

    I have to make sell sheets for work in InDesign semi-regularly, with one column being designated for product images. Having a way for strokes to be rendered over images would be great. Only way I’ve found of circumventing it has been to set the images to the Multiply style so the stroke can show through.

  4. Remove trailing whitespace removes carriage return before a table

    Grep remove trailing whitespace also removes carriage return before a table. This should not happen but rather table should be seen as a separate paragraph item.

  6. Repeat header and footer options wanted as part of table styles

    The "repeat header" and "repeat footer" settings can not be set on a table style.
    I'd like to be able to adjust the way table headers and footers repeats from within a table style (including a new "no repeat" option).

  10. Specify subheader in addition to header, body (with alternating fills) and footer

    I would like the ability to have a sub-header style applied to a table style. I design tables with a title (or header), an area for the column topics (or sub-header), and then a body with alternating fills, and a footer without a fill. It would be great to be able to apply one table style that will incorporate all of those styles. See the included table as an example of what I am trying to do.

  11. Quick change of tables column width and row height

    Please give us the ability to set column width and row height of a table in one step.

    Today I only can change one table column after the other if I want different column width. The same is true for table rows if I want different row height as well.

    With the script (AutoColumn) from Gerald Singelmann it’s possible to change at least all column width in one step. I didn’t found a script for row height till today.

    I attached a video (AutoColumn.mov.zip) where I demo the script and perhaps this explains it a little bit better.
    You can…

    In the example shown by you, you’re trying to ‘Unmerge Cells’ of a Single-Row Table after merging these cells in a previous step. This has not been possible in any of the versions of InDesign till now.
    This would require a new implementation altogether and would thus fall under a Feature Request category.
    We’re moving it to the Feature Requests page.

    Thanks,
    Adobe InDesign team

  20. Table option to disallow breaking across pages

    I would like to be able to specify that a table should not break across columns, frames or pages. It could be an option in the Table Options ('Keep entire table together') that could then be specified in the Table Style. Alternatively, if it's easier, I'd be happy with the existing Cell Option 'Keep with next row' to be available as an option to set in the Cell Style, and I could then apply the appropriate cell style as the basic cell style in the Table Style. This would be much easier than manually selecting each individual table and applying…
