    Scaling Tables

    why_zzz

      I'm using InDesign CC 2015. I am having issues scaling tables.

       

      In previous versions of InDesign, I have scaled tables in two ways:

       

      The first and the one I use most often... I'd select the table (i.e. the text box which the table is inside) using the Selection Tool, hold Command + Shift keys while dragging the corner and the table will scale in proportion to the desired size I'd like.

       

      The second method... I'd select the table (i.e. the text box which the table is inside) using the Selection Tool, while still selected, change to the Scale Tool and double click the Scale Tool icon in the Tool palette to bring up the Scale palette... here I would input the percentage I'd like to scale the table and the table will scale in proportion to the desired size.

       

      When I do any of the above two methods using InDesign CC 2015, NO SCALING happens.

       

      I've found a work around by exporting the file to .idml opening the .idml in an older version of InDesign, scaling the table(s), saving the file, and opening the file in InDesign CC 2015 and continue working.

       

      Can anyone suggest anything to avoid me going between versions of InDesign
