I have a table that was originally a Pagemaker table back in the day. I tried to apply alternating row strokes (Table > Table Options > Alternating Row Strokes) as well as Column Strokes but the stokes don't show, the table 'blinks' when updating the preview but no strokes appear. I have tried selecting the whol table and then the proxy, adding a 4 point black stroke to all, but the first row shows the stroke only (see screenshot).
If anyone has any suggestions...

Pagemaker did not have native tables. There was the app Adobe Table which you could create a stand-alone table file, then export to place in PM. So, this file is probaly not a "table", and most likely text. But you could easily convert text to table in Indesign, and then setup your alternating rows.
