I have imported a huge table from Word into my InDesign CC document. I noticed that the columns do not line up as they should. The problem is that the column lines cannot be dragged to make them line up; there appears to be a second column line on some of these cells that prevent things from lining up. The column(s) select as one unit, but cannot be aligned because of this mysterious second line. No amount of clicking or dragging can reach these slivers. Anybody know what's up?
See below, the columns labeled 5, 10, 20, and 30 don't line up as they move down the page.
Below, is the guided view. I can't get at the double lines and those double lines prevent things from lining up.
I'm by no means an expert with tables, but it looks to me like in the lower two sections the cells are merged between the wide column and the narrow spacer column. If you unmerge the cells first you should be able to delete the spacers, or just leave them and things will probably line up anyway.
I've never seen that before; but the unmerge did the trick. This table has a lot of problems, heh. I'll have to take a closer look at the source table to see what the author did.
