Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Fixing row height and column width, part of InDesign CS3 One-on-One: Style Sheets.
In this exercise, we are going to take care of the problems that weren't addressed,…the issues that were not addressed by the application of the Table Style.…Namely, the fact that the column widths aren't everything that they should be,…and of course, the fact that the rows are too scrunched.…By the way, if you are just joining us, you can open up a document that goes by the name,…the simple name is Scrunched.indd that's found inside of the O6 Table Styles folder and I am going to go ahead…and press the W key to get us back into the Preview mode, so we don't have all that other distracting stuff going on,…all those hidden characters and guidelines and so on.…
Now, I am going to switch to the Type tool, let's go and Zoom in just a little bit here.…I will switch to the Type tool and then I will click anywhere inside this bottom scrunched table and I will press Ctrl+Alt+A…or Command+Option+A on the Mac to select the contents of the entire table.…Now let's go over to the Table palette and it is this palette right here, that's how I can bring it up anyway.…
