We have a maddening problem with the limited table rendering capacity of Webworks.
The tables in the original FrameMaker document have a number of cells which are greyed out using the Custom Ruling and Shading function, to indicate that the choice is not available. Some of these cells have text in them. Webworks strips out the shading so the affected cells are displayed in white. Also, we dislike the way Webworks displays each cell as a separate box with thin ruled lines -the original table has a single ruled line between each cell. The only solution I can find is likely to be extremely time-consuming if it is necessary to go back to the table at a later stage to edit it. This is, to strip each table out of the FrameMaker document and save it as a PDF file. FrameMaker will import PDF but Webworks still recognises it as a table and does its' own thing to it. So I have copied the PDF content into Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop and saved it as a .png file, then imported it back in to the FrameMaker document as an embedded graphic. The appearance is pretty much as the original table in the FrameMaker document and Webworks can't mess with it as it is now a graphic. But taking them all out, saving as PDF then as .png is such a palaver. Anyone got any better ideas? Thales UK Ltd (Wells) DISCLAIMER: The information contained in this e-mail is confidential.
