    It would be great to have a more graphical way of creating styles for tables. In particular the horizontal/vertical rules which just seems really fiddly to me and quite easy to click on the wrong thing and then mess up the design. I think that Microsoft are on to something with the way Word handles table design. It's not perfect but just seems more intuitive.

    If every other program can do it, why not InDesign? All the forums I've found on the subject have had people asking for this feature for at least 6 years. One post back from someone at Adobe basically said, "that's the way it works"! Not very useful.

    I just started using the Markzware ID Util program which seems to work really well. Thanks Colin!

    I had a file where I tried using table cell background images and had a lot of problems. It was a 4 page A4 document which listed a lot of e-learning and which countries it was available in. Those were full opacity flag images and where it wasn't available they were 10% opacity (so faded back). There were somewhere in the region of 2500-3500 images and it made the InDesign file pretty much unusable it was that slow. I spent some time experimenting with different image types and sizes. Illustrator vector files were the slowest and made the exported PDF absolutely huge. Even making the images tiny, and I'm talking 15 pixels wide still didn't make any difference. Changing the Display Performance setting to Typical Display or even Fast Display didn't change how slow it was. It did seem that having that many images in one file was too much for InDesign to handle.

    In the end I did the table in Numbers then experimented with how wide all the columns needed to be to make it fit properly in the InDesign file. I then updated that each time (which was easy as the file supplied to me was an Excel document anyway), created a PDF from Numbers, opened that in Illustrator to get rid of the odd things that Numbers added and then importing that into InDesign with everything else needed and then exporting again as a PDF. Sounds like more of a pain than it actually was.

    It's something we don't do any more but I thought I'd mention it in this thread.

    When using images for print, I wouldn't recommend PNG as that's a format really designed for screen and it doesn't support CMYK. For images with a transparent background, I'd always use PSD format.

    Agreed - definitely save this as an interactive PDF

    This feature now seems to be working fine for some reason even though it definitely hasn't been working for me for a while.

    This is a great idea and I'd also like the same with the spell check window. It really does get in the way when spell checking. While I'm at it, a working UNDO feature for both would be handy as well.

    Agreed. Making gradients in InDesign is a real pain.
