What's up? CTRL+D not works? Or you forget where in CTRL+K checkbox to paste all formatting?
Hey George. Yes this is when placing the excel file into the indd.
None of the setting work in CC. I have been trouble shooting with CS6 and its all working as it should.
I'll give this a try but its not the answer to why certain functionalities do not work in CC.
When placing your Excel table have you clicked on the Options button to show the import choices?
Select 'Show Import Options' when placing the .xlsx file, click 'Open'
Then you will have the option to select 'Formatted Table' from the drop down menu beside 'Formatting' You also have the option to choose which Sheet or Cell Range from the table you are placing.
Click Ok and you should have a formatted table.
Viewing the page in 'Normal' Screen mode allows you to see the table cells
however viewing it in 'Preview' mode hides the cell edges and it looks like tabbed text.
I hope this helps!
Hi Alma, thanks for this. Yes this is what we have been doing. We have had this as our workflow here for the past 5 years. I thought that was pretty obvious.
Do you haver any idea why it always pulls in an 'Unformatted Table' ?
I'm not sure what you mean by you thought that was pretty obvious so can't help you there.
By default, in InDesign CC 2017 Excel tables will be imported as formatted tables. I'm not sure why this isn't the case for you. In previous versions of InDesign (CS4) Unformatted Table was the default setting but not sure what is happening with your document.
