I thought I'd check here before submitting this as a bug.
I'm trying to make all of the tables in my (long) document repeat their headers at the top of every text column.
I can apply this setting to an individual table by selecting the table and going to Table > Table Options > Headers and Footers.
But I do not see anywhere to set these header and footer settings in Table Styles.
And, table styles do appear to honor these settings:
Say I create a table and apply a table style to it. I check to make sure that there are no overrides applied to the table style. Now I go to Table > Table Options > Headers and Footers and change a setting there. Now the table style shows that I have overridden it. If I clear overrides, the setting is removed. If I don't clear overrides, and instead redefine the table style, it maintains the setting I've changed and I can apply that to other tables. But, when I view the table style's settings, nothing has been added to its list of Style Settings.
Is this a bug? Thanks in advance to anyone who can either point me toward something I'm missing or confirm that I'm not crazy for expecting this functionality to be there.
Now, that's odd. You are not crazy! I am surprised that you can use all of the Cell Style section of the table style to specify, say, all the right columns to have a single cell style, and you can define which style the header will get when you go turn it on manually, but you can't define it in the style.
I put it up to the fact that tables were a third-party plugin (by Woodwing? I can't remember who made it originally) that Adobe bought and added it to ID, and then left it unchanged for a decade. So maybe not a bug as such, but just an inconsistency in development.
