    Table Cells Auto Size

    10215

      Is there a way to turn off table cells aouto expanding? For instance, I want to put a phot in a cell, but I don't want the cell to expand to fit the photo.

       

      Sort of like locking the cells dimensions.

       

      Any ideas?

          Cells only automatically expand vertically, and to prevent this you would set a fixed row height (the default is 'Auto').

          But that's a superficial solution; it sounds like the cell keeps its original size and the photo hangs out of it on the right side. If you look closely, you'll see the *cell* didn't really expand. InDesign doesn't auto-size the width of cells, and neither can you use Scale to Fit in a cell.
