Love alternate fills - hate that they don't seem to like being interrupted by new subheads which look different, after which I'd like the alternate fills to restart from first colour.
So, for e.g., there are 10 brands, each followed by a varying number of products.
1st brand is styled as a subhead (no fill), great. Following alternate fills then begin. Lovely.
2nd brand enters stage. It has to override alternate styling, though, in order to stand out.
However, ID table doesn't know how to restart at first alternate colour after this interruption.
Meaning that each brand has to have a separate table - most unInDesign like, which is so well geared up for long documents and linked text boxes.
(my tables average about 150-200 rows - with about 10 categories per table).
Got a horrible feeling I'm missing something really obvious - which hopefully some hawkeye can point ou to me!
Mm, maybe there's a simpler way of putting it.
Is it possible to have many tables within one table, with 'alternate fills' restarting on the first colour on a row specified by the user?
When using tabs instead of tables, you can select the rows of text, then apply that great ID trick of "apply [style] then next style..."
I'd like a similar slight of hand when working in tables... or a script?
