find/change colour tint in table cell

Apr 12, 2012 3:26 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I have a document containing a heap of tables. The tables currently have a tint of 15% black in some of the rows and I need to change this to 5% black. I also need to change the stroke weight from 0.5pt to 0.3pt.

 

Since there are so many of them, I wondered if there was a way to do this with find and change. The tables aren't objects - they're just regular tables inserted into the text frames.

 

Appreciate any help.

 

Thanks

    If you want the changes to be there in all the tables , then you can try the Tables styles or the Cell style.

     

    Go to "Windows-->Styles-->Table styles", similarly you can load the "Cell styles"

     

    Right click on the style applied to the table in which you want to make the change , click "Edit <style name> ,

     

    Make teh changes out there and check.

    Nope. But it's doable with a script! Check the one I wrote for this thread and see if this does the job for you: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/681944

    You are correct, it doesn't change stroke weights, only table fills. Well, at least it does half the job.

    Didn't you try and check what it does? To change fills you don't need to change anything in the script. You just run it and follow the prompts:
