    Fitting of a Single Table in Multiple Pages

    revathiv80720177

      Hi all,

       

      In InDesign,if we try to flow a table having more number of rows,it will be fitting in one page with a “+” red sign at the bottom of the table.Is it possible to fit these table in next pages/column  without the "+" sign using script.

          You can try automatic resizing option but I can't remember how that behaves with tables. However in your case, not only that shouldn't overflow but it should need to be reloated/reflowed onto the page.

          You may want to work with columns or threaded texts. But I would certainly consider a plugin as EasyCatalog for those kind of work.

            Hi ,

             

            I was able to flow the overset  frame using this script:

             

            while (myFrames[0].overflows === true) {
              var myNewPage = myDoc.pages.add();
              var myMargin = myNewPage.marginPreferences;
              var myBounds = [myMargin.top, myMargin.left, myDoc.documentPreferences.pageHeight - myMargin.bottom, myDoc.documentPreferences.pageWidth - myMargin.right];
              var myOldRuler = myDoc.viewPreferences.rulerOrigin;
              myDoc.viewPreferences.rulerOrigin = RulerOrigin.pageOrigin;
              with(myDoc.pages[-1].textFrames.add()) {
              geometricBounds = myBounds;
              previousTextFrame = myDoc.pages[-2].textFrames[0];
              }
              myDoc.viewPreferences.rulerOrigin = myOldRuler;

              }

             

            But I was  able to apply this only for the last text frame in a document.How shall I apply it for all the overset frame in document.Please do guide me.

             

             

            Thanks and Regards,
