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.
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.
Is there no way to do this with find/change?
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
Sorry to come back to this post but I'm still trying to figure out how to adapt the script suggested at this link: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/681944
I'm assuming I need to swap out some values but how would I adapt it so that it looks for table cells coloured with 20% black and changes them to 10% black.
Any further advice appreciated.
