Script to resize all tables in a document

Nov 19, 2013 10:46 PM

I'm using Framemaker 11, and have tons of tables that need to be resized so that they fit within the text frame. Does anyone know of a script or a fast way to resize all the tables in a document at once?

    The inexpensive TableCleaner plugin from http://www.frameexpert.com/ can

    do this, but the website appears to be in the middle of a redesign and I

    could not see a way to access the plugins.

    Hi Jay,

     

    I doubt any such script is in the public domain, so I can't offer an immediate solution. I can say, though, that this is exactly the kind of thing that ExtendScript is perfect for. You could probably pull this off with a very simple script, maybe 50 lines of code or less, depending on how detailed the resizing action should be (for example, do you want to proportionally resize all column widths, etc.)?

    TableCleaner does a bunch more than just resizing, and is one of the best values I've seen for a plugin.

     

    Looks like he's switching his content to a Wordpress site, so here's Rick's direct info:
