Table anchor turning body text to Times New Roman instead of Arial in HTML5 output

tableanchoroddness.png I'm finding that if i have a table anchor on a line of body text, the text switches to Times New Roman, rather than the specified Arial in the HTML5 output. If I put a return in and have the table anchor on a blank line, the problem goes away. As far as I can tell, everything is assigned Arial so I can't work out what's causing this. Is my only fix to have all table anchors on their own para?

Hi,

You say: As far as I can tell, everything is assigned Arial ...

Can you check, if the paragraph with the table anchor uses Arial?

When I tested this, the font after the table anchor turns into Times. I would say that this is a bug. I will check, if this is already described in the Adobe Tracker.

Generally it's best to put table anchors in their own paragraph. This way you will have better control about the pagination and the position of your table.

As a default you would get an empty paragraph. However, when you format everything this way, the table will move on top of the empty paragraph with the table anchor:

Paragraph Spacing Below: -x pt (e.g. -10 pt)

Table Margin Top: -x pt (e.g. -10 pt)

Both values are the same, and they are negative.

Best regards, Winfried

Thanks Winfried. I appreciate the help. The para with the table anchor has the same style assigned as those above it that are Arial. I'll go with your suggestion of a blank para for all table anchors.

Yes. A blank paragraph for the table anchor is definitely recommended.

For example, when the table anchor is in the same paragraph as text and the table does not fit on a page and will move to the next page, it could happen that the table will pull text from the paragraph to the next page. Not good.

What's the HTML code that is controlling that content in your output? Seeing how the HTML is formatting the text will help you map it to CSS entries, rather than "forcing" the formatting from your print doc.

At the moment I'm doing some experiments to see if I can make doc HTML friendly straight from the print setup, but I have a HTML expert backup plan if it fails.
