When editing the content of a Print article in Studio, tables are represented by an icon.
Figure: The table icon represents a table in a Print article.
Working with tables can be done by performing the following actions:
- Previewing a table
- Editing a table
Previewing a table
Previewing the styling and content of a table is possible when the Print article is placed on a layout. When this is the case, the article can be previewed in the Preview panel by clicking the Preview icon in the toolbar.
Editing a table
Editing a table is possible by changing the text. Actions that are not supported include:
- Applying paragraph styles or character styles
Note: The editor does support the 'next paragraph style' feature (requires Studio 11.66 or higher). This means that when a Next Style is defined in a paragraph style and Enter is pressed when the cursors is placed at the end of a paragraph, that this next style is applied to the new paragraph.
- Adding inline notes
- Showing hidden characters
- Changing the styling of the table
- Adding or removing rows or columns
- Merging cells
- Editing a table that is part of another object such as a table or a footnote
- Manipulate the text using the Print editor text SDK
Step 1. Double-click the table icon.
The table is displayed as an overlay or the editor.
Note: Depending on the width of the table, the number of columns and the number of panels that are open, the horizontal scrollbar may have to be used to see parts of the table.
Step 2. Make the necessary changes by changing the text.
Step 3. When done, click Close table.
