RE: Removing custom row heights

Row format. Because this isn't in a Designer window, remove overrides doesn't 
touch it.

What do you mean by custom row heights? Do you mean the top and bottom cell 
margins in the Table Designer are not the same as defined in the table tag, or 
do you mean the top and bottom cell margins in the Paragraph Designer have 
custom settings and are not the same throughout the table?

Is there another way to set the row heights in a table?

Hi,

the table row format options can only applied individually and are not accessed 
via a format list (afaik).

You could write a script (Framescript or ExtendScript) to change all rows to 
specific values.

(In ExtendScript, the objects are called RowMaxHeight and RowMinHeight.)

RE: Removing custom row heights

2014-07-07 Thread Craig Ede
I set the row heights to zero, which I believe is the default. FrameMaker
seems to take things over from there using the current paragraph tag to set
the height to the minimum without obscuring text.

 

If all your custom settings are the same (for example: 1.56789) you can do
a simple search and replace in the mif.

 

Replace:

RowMinHeight  1.56789

with

RowMinHeight  0

 

It looks to me like you could reset all tables by just removing the
RowMinHeight x.x line from the mif. That would require a more
sophisticated find value that used wildcards (or regexp)

 

Try this on a copy of a file and see if that works for you.

Yes, but this could take a long time if
  you have a lot of tables with a lot of rows. 
  
  However, if you do the search and replace using a text editor that
  supports regular expressions (Notepad++, etc.) this could be a
  good solution. The regular _expression_ to search for would be
  "RowMinHeight [0-9]*.[0-9]*" (without the quotes) and replace
  with RowMinHeight 0.

RE: Removing custom row heights

2014-07-07 Thread Heiko Haida
 

Hi Craig, 

this kind of manipulation via MIF sounds like a very good idea. I did
not check, but I am pretty sure this would work. 

Best regards - 

Tino H. Haida 

Craig Ede: 

 I wasn't suggesting a table by table approach, but a search and replace 
 approach of the kind Shmuel describes. Framemaker could do the search and 
 replace, but Notepad++ is a lot more efficient. 
 
 Notepad++ seems to work using search and replace as follows (for all tables). 
 You could restrict it to the particular table setting you want removed if 
 you'd like. 
 
 Use the regular expression option. 
 
 Set Find to RowMinHeight *.* 
 
 Set Replace to RowMinHeight 0 
 
 If you cut  paste a RowMinHeight x.xxx line from the mif, you'll get the 
 right space and tick marks. 
 
 Here's a JPG showing the options selected in Notepad++. Do a Find Next to 
 make sure you are getting what you want and then do a replace all. Retain a 
 copy of your original file. 
 
 Note that you can do the replace on a whole series of open documents.

You might want to try Table Tools to see if the Remove Overrides function 
will remove the custom row heights. The routine attempts to reset each table 
back to the characteristics of the underlying table format. You can download 
the plug-in from http://www.siliconprairiesoftware.com. It's shareware, so you 
can try it out to see if it works, before you'd have to spend any money for the 
plug-in.

Re: Removing custom row heights

2014-06-20 Thread Simon BUCH

Hello,

I would perform the actions on each file:
a. open the document
b. File  Save As ; specify MIF format
c. close the document
d. Using a text editor such as NotePad++ [or sed], remove every 
line that starts:

RowMinHeight
and/or:
RowMaxHeight
e. save the MIF
f. open the MIF in FrameMaker, and SaveAs FM format

There's probably an extendscript that could automate part of that task.

With ExtendScript, you can avoid MIF altogether and the script will just
work on the FrameMaker document, or all of the documents in a book or

Hi Pat...

I doubt that there are any plugins available to do this. Your best bet 
would be to write an ExtendScript (or have one written) that processes 
all files in a book and all tables in each file. Shouldn't be too much 
effort.
