I am trying to select multiple cells in a table in InDesign. The cells are not adjacent to each other. Once I have selected the multiple cells I would like to apply a swatch colour as fill and to bold the text. I need to do 130 tables with a multitude of different selections per table (no two tables are the same). The quickest way possible would be fantastic. I can't find the answer anywhere. Any help would be fantastic.
You can't select non-adjacent cells in InDesign. It just isn't programmed that way.
Best way would be to create a Cell Style - within the style of the cell you can have the colour change and you can also assign a Paragraph Style.
You can then assign a keyboard shortcut to the Cell Style and using this would
Invoke the cell colour
Change the paragraph style to bold
