Hi there

 

In Table Designer - Shading I can set the color for header and footer but my tables have different colors for each element separately (header black and footer white for example). Currently I have to change the footer with Custom Ruling and Shading for every table I do because changes done with this pod are not stored in the tablet style. 

 

Is there any way to make this better?

 

Thanks a lot for your time

You could automate this with ExtendScript and the script could be set to run every time you insert a new table of a particular table format.

Hi oscarl10989624,

 

Yes. Rick is right. I also would ask someone to write a script for you. He can do this. Or you find companies here: https://partners.adobetechcomm.com/ 

 

And: Make a request in the Adobe bug tracker: https://tracker.adobe.com/#/home 

Then post the number here, so that others can vote for it.

 

Best regards

Rick's answer is likely your best solution. However, since the only way to achieve your goal is to introduce a table format override, you may end up with subtle management issues down the road if, for instance, you want to update a table style. Of course, additional scripts can be written (Rick's done this for me "more than once," and always with amazing results) but if you can figure a way to adjust your style guide to accommodate default formatting options you'll have one less thing to track in your documents.
