Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing tables for optimal conversion, part of InDesign CS6 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad.
The good news is that with InDesign CS6 you get much more information in your tables when…you export to EPUB than you ever did before.…I have here a document with two versions of the same table, except one has little bit more…formatting than the other. And also, this one on page one has been formatted manually, so…this is all basic paragraph overrides, it is using the Table setting. Let me select…the Table, and we zoom in a bit to make a little easier to select.…I will just right-click and choose Select > Table, and if we look up here under Table…Options, it has Alternating Fills, but it has not been saved as a Table Style, there…is no cell styles. Let's actually open that up, if you go to the Window menu and go down…to Type & Tables, choose Table, you get a grouped panel that has Table settings that…you normally just use right up here in the Control Panel when you have something in the…table selected but also a Table Styles and Cell Styles. And if you work with a lot of…tables in your documents, you probably want to add them to your EPUB workspace.…
