    Removing unwanted vertical white space in a cell/row automatically

    Alex Damaceno Level 1

      Hi, everyone.

       

      I've just started using a new method of importing tables into InDesign - selecting the table from a Word document,

      changing the pasting style to "All Information" (in Edit > Preferences > Clipboard Handling).

       

      Then, I apply the Cell Styles (all of them with their own Paragraph Style). They all have their Inset settings well defined.

       

      In most cells, I just use Top Cell Inset, to keep the text baseline together with the cell's bottom limit.

       

      But, since the table comes form a Word document, usually with a bigger font size,

      most of the time, there's that extra vertical space inside the rows after I apply my Cell Styles

      and InDesign tells me that I have to manually remove that extra vertical space in every single row.

       

      Does anyone know a script/plug-in that removes this unwanted vertical space automatically?

       

      Thanks in advance.
