tables jumping to next page
Sometimes tables that fit on one page jumps to the next page causing reflow. It does this randomly and can't figure out why. This has to be caused by bug in indesign. I really wish Adobe would focus more on fixing the many bugs in its programs rather than adding new features.
I don't know why, my INDD and IDML files didn't upload the first time... Trying again.
EDIT: Nope, they're not coming thorugh. So not only InDesign is buggy, this platform is as well 🙄
I can't believe how much I'm paying for this privilege.
Let's see if Drive links work:
I've been having the same issue.
Currently using Adobe InDesign CC version 18.4 x64, but this has been happening in earlier versions as well.
My document consists out of multiple pages containing connected text frames. Text frame contains formatted text and at least one table. The text frames are set to 2 columns, and I don't know if this is relevant to the issue.
The table is in a paragraph that is set to span columns. The table caption paragraph spans columns as well.
Upon making any change on the document that causes reflow of pages (deleting pages, adding or deleting an image, adding or deleting a footnote, etc.), a table jumps onto the next text frame, even though there's plenty of space for the table to fit within her previous text frame. The space where the table used to be is blank.
After I either add or delete a space character in the paragraph immediately before the table/caption, the caption and the table jump back to their place and text reflows properly.
But this tends to trigger a cascade of other tables in the same story, so if I have a story with multiple tables and the first one jumps, when I fix that one the next one jumps, and so on.
It's not a critical bug, but because I'm currently working on a 170+ page document with dozens of tables, and this happens to each of them as soon as I delete or add a page, I'm losing lots of time getting them all back where they need to be.
