Using FrameMaker 2017 (version 14.0.4.512), when a table row or cell entry is tagged as a conditional entry,

and "show condition indicators" is on, a crosshatch pattern is applied to the interior border of the row or cell.

Unfortunately, the crosshatch pattern is very thick. I seek the ability to reduce the thickness of the crosshatch pattern.

Is this possible?  If so, how is this achieved? I still want to show the condition indicator.  I just want to modify it.

With experimentation I found an alternative solution which appeals to me.

    Open the "Table designer".

    Place the cursor in the table to modify.

    Select the "basic" tab.

    In the basic tab, I modified the cell pad specifications

    from :

                top    right   bottom  left

    cell pad    3.0pt  2.0pt   1.0pt   2.0pt

    to :

    cell pad    1.0pt  1.0pt   1.0pt   1.0pt

    This places the cell content closer to the cell border,

    which minimizes space for the crosshatch pattern.

    It is a trade-off I prefer.

Hi Bruce:

No, not as far as I know, and there are definitely not controls within the FrameMaker interface.

You can add a background color to make it solid, otherwise you will have cross-hatching that will scale with the magnification. Either way, the thickness of the cross-hatching remains constant.

100%:
