I'm using RH10 importing books from FM11. In FM, there are 5 standard tables with varying column widths totaling to the width of the page. The FM table definitions are in inches. In RH, I mapped the standard tables and on the Master Page have identified the 5 standard tables but set the columns to be percentages. Based on what I had read, I understood that the 2 columns in FM that were 1.5 and 4.75 inches would become 24% and 76% of the table that is set to 95%. When I look at the HTML code generated, the table width is 600 and the columns are 168 and 432. How do I get RH to use the dynamic mapping from the master page when it imports the FM documents? I have downloaded the 2015 version and tried it but I'm getting the same results. All ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
I don't know the real answer to this one but I do know of a bug when generating a Word document from RoboHelp. I know you are importing and from Fm but there could be a link. I have posted the bug below on Adobe's bug base and maybe it will give you a clue as to what to try.
Problem Description: If a table and the columns are measured in percentages, on generating printed documentation the column widths remain as a percentage but the table width gets converted to inches and not the same width that 100% would be. This results in table not fitting into page width. Measurements should be as defined in Rh.
Steps to Reproduce: Create a table with measurements set to percentages. Generate a printed document.
Actual Result: Table does not fit page width.
Expected Result: Table fits page width.
Any Workarounds: Manually fix in Word.

Thank you, Peter. I was really hoping it was not a bug, but it makes the most sense unless there is another hidden piece of the puzzle.
