CS6: how can I anchor a rotated page with an inserted table to the introduction to the table which may end half way down the previous page?
So I have ended my table introduction half way down the page, then rotated the next page and created a table, then started the description of the table at the top of the next vertical page. ( I know they are really all vertical). The rotated page with the table will not stay in the position following the table intro, even if I add sone returns and I don't like formatting that way. Nothing I can do will anchor the rotated table page to the text intro. I do not have this problem when I insert a table into a normal page of text.
The image on the left shows how I set up the table after the table introduction on the previous page. It is impossible to show in a pic how the table on the rotated page (actually it is the rotated page) is dislodged when text is added or subtracted in other parts of the document. The image on the right shows how removing a few lines of text pulls the text from after the table up onto the page above the table. The tables have been located in several frames but that doesn't seem to help.
thanks for your help.
I'm not quite sure I understand what you are doing here, but I think rather than adding all those empty paragraphs you should either apply a keep option to the paragraph where the table is located that says start on nect page, or add a page break in place of the empty paragraphs.
Hi and thanks. Just trying to keep the text introducing the table before the table. I will try adding a keep option but wont it keep with the next text text rather than the table page? I'll try. Then i'll try a page break.
Yes the page has only a table. I tried a no keep option, like I do with tables in vertical pages (works) but it doesn't work here... yet. maybe when I add some keeps or space befores and then the keep option might work???
The table should be threaded right in to the flow of the text. At the end of the introductory material hit the enter key and add the table. Apply the keep option to that paragraph and the table will either go into overset, or move to the next page. On the next page (rotated) ad your text frame and make sure it is the next frame in the thread and your table should appear.
