    How do I change the default setting for baseline offset in tables?

    Bing Cadaver

      I am working on a multi page catalogue with client-provided InDesign 5.5 (windows) files generated from a data management system called STEP trailblazer. When I open the document and edit any of the tables, the rows expand slightly so the tables overset in the frame. I've found that selecting the rows and changing the baseline offset from 'ascent' to 'cap height' solves the problem, however it's painfully time consuming doing hundreds of individual tables. Any ideas on how to easily stipulate a global setting?

       

      thanks
