FM17: I cannot create a new table style from an existing table. I select an existing table and rename it in the Table Designer, click 'Create Style' and I get a warning 'Not all settings are specified. Fill in all the settings and try again'. Obviously all settings are filled in, as this table style already exists.

Each time I move from one tab to another in the Table Designer, I'm asked whether I want to apply changes, even though nothing has changed in the table settings, this can go on indefinitely even if I apply changes every time.

Hi Andy:Re-reading your second post, I think you figured out that you hadn't updated the original style—and that was the issue. If so, please confirm and we can mark your second reply as correct. If not, of course, let us know and we can continue to help.~Barb

Apparently due to one of the ruling settings being 'As is', warning not helpful at all.

Hi Andy:

Here is the workflow.

  1. Click an insertion point inside an existing table.
