If you are using indesign cc 2015, try to select cell and from table>convert cell to graphic cell then place the image.
can you post some screenshots here so that we can see the issue?
Use the forum's widget for placing images at the insertion point when edititing a reply:
Invisible characters should show. Like the end of text marker: #
Also frame edges.
Like in the example below that is showing two cases of placing images in table cells.
Top image is placed in a graphic cell ( CC 2015 only).
Bottom image is placed at the insertion point of text in a text cell.
( CC 2015 and versions below. )
Hint: You can set the cell stroke color to "None" and the stroke width to "0".
Unless I misunderstood the post, michaelk20949746 is not wanting to hide the strokes, but to have them show. They are visible in the InDesign document, but hidden in the PDF.
I have seen the same thing in a Data Merge document that I do once a year. 800 or so images merged into table cells, and inevitable, some of them wind up covering the cell borders.
Yes, after reading Michael's post again and after posting my reply it dawned on me.
So the correct way to do this would be using graphic cells where the strokes always obscure the placed image.
You place an image to a text cell
and you set the stroke to the image container and not to the cell.
( In case there is a bug with that. )
Thank you! I will convert to graphic cells before placing images from here on out.
What is the quickest way to fix the cells where images are already placed? I see that I don't have the option of converting to a graphic cell now that the images are already placed.
For a graphic cell, there's an option to clip the graphic to the cell.
Select the graphic cell and choose Table > Cell Options > Graphic > Clipping > Clip Contents to the Cell
Thanks - that worked. I had to clip contents to cell, and inset the cells 0p1. Thank you!
But still contents are missing
