Select the Table
And go to Table>Cell Options
go to the Rows and Columns tab
Change Row Height to "At Least"
Insert 0 (you'll be hit with a warning of what the lowest amount you can insert)
Then insert that value.
I've seen this workaround before, but that's kinda cheating (and a waste of time, since you've already set the vertical Insets in Cell Styles).
Is there no other way to remove this gap? This vertical gap NOT DETERMINED by the table insets?
The Row Height has nothing to do with Insets.
Have you tried it?
Yes, Tried it and it worked. Thanks.
But... Isn't there any other way? Like I said earlier, it's kind of a cheat.
Uhhmmm....how is it a cheat? In getting software to produce a desired result, there are no ethics or fairness, so there is no "cheating." Of course there's always the question of "best practice," and that is important, but think about it: You want the row height to automatically collapse when you reduce the font. The "at least" feature built into the software will give you exactly that effect, without any hacking, faking, or optical illusions. Not every challenge has a dedicated solution, but I'd say in this particular case, at least (pun intended) you've got a method.
Maybe I should'nt call it a cheat, but a "cheat"...
My point is: everything else in InDesign can be set and controlled in its minimmun details.
Tables are a very important part of a lot of people's work and (yet)
we don't have some features to make our jobs a little less annoying.
I thought maybe - just maybe - there could be a script for it. Instead of "cheating" InDesign into doing it.
Anyway, there's a solution. Not the one we deserve, but the one we need right now.
