Upon epub export, the columns from some of my Indesign tables get squished, hyphenating some of the category heds. Is there a way to set the columns to maintain a decent width so that the heds don't hyphenate, whether it be in ID or an epub editor?
Sometimes, with a reflowable ePub, it's best to make a JPG of the table and use that (a graphic) instead.
Actually now that I've viewed your screen shots, I think it would be better if you didn't use tables for this text but you redesigned it as a single column.
And how would that table be read out loud with Accessibility software Derek? 😉
I agree with Derek--this can be designed in a single column with the Do/Don't on top of one another in the text flow.
Long, wide, or complex tables and flowable EPUBs usually don't work well together. However, if you really want to use the tables, I would make a PNG graphic (not JPEG) and add copy the content in alt text area.
Thanks for the advice, guys.
So, coming along a while later: the short answer is that there is no way to make a table full-width?
I have a master timeline table that is repeated in 1-3 line lengths at the head of the chapters. The main table is full width, just fine; absolutely nothing in ID or CSS setup will make the tables more than half-width in the inserts, no matter how much text is in the columns.
Short of the (kludge) of making 50+ PNG graphics of the table lines, I'm stuck with half-width tables in the chapters?
