Tables and Text

It’s important to understand that, like anything else in a document, tables are not an entity unto themselves. Tables work in conjunction with many other FrameMaker functions, as you have probably experienced in your day-to-day tasks and read about in this chapter. This section takes you through some of the challenges presented in working with text in table cells. For this purpose, I focus on text behavior in cells and converting tables to and from text.

Text in Cells

You might have noticed that when you insert a new table, the text in the title, heading, and body cells is automatically formatted with a particular paragraph tag. Read through the section “Transparent Properties” on page 164 for a more in-depth explanation of this concept. In the meantime, it’s important to understand that whatever paragraph format is automatically set in table title, heading, and body cells, you can change these at any time by simply applying a new paragraph tag to one or more cells.
