    Table formatting

    rjfoster03 Level 1

      Being new to using InDesign, I am thinking that my issue is due to operator error.  I am trying to get a table to behave so that when I Export to EPUB, the formating looks like I have when I am working in InDesign CS6.

       

      I have the table inserted and selected Exactly in the Cell Properties.  When I Export to EPUB, the Cell Width is not maintained as I want it to be.

       

      Here is the view of the table in InDesign:

      Here is the view when Exported:

       

      table2.jpg

       

      Is there something that I am not doing?  Any help would be appreciated.

          Cell widths are are transferred into epubs. If you need to adjust them, you'll have to do so in the epub file.

          Remember that an epub is simply a HTML view and could be viewed at wildly different screen sizes. Fixed column widths would not work so well.

            Well, that at least explains why ithe table was not looking the same.....  thanks for the response- I will try to come up with a format that presents a little different.
