Hi All,

I have probably asked this question before, but the issue has come up again. When you insert a table in FrameMaker, there are "default" paragraph formats for each column in Header, Body, and Footer rows in the table. In the MIF TblCatalog, they look like this:

...

<TblCatalog

<TblFormat

  <TblTag `Format A'>

  <TblColumn

   <TblColumnNum 0>

   <TblColumnWidth  1.0">

   <TblColumnH

    <PgfTag `CB_CellHeading'>

   > # end of TblColumnH

   <TblColumnBody

    <PgfTag `CB_CellBody'>

   > # end of TblColumnBody

...

You can see them in the <PgfTag entries in this snippet. Are these properties exposed anywhere in the FDK? I don't think they are, but if not, I wonder why? It sure would be handy to be able to change them programmatically. Thanks in advance.

Rick
