Hi Everyone,

 

I have updated the InDesign document with the new xml using scripts.

After the update i got an error as overset text issue and the code value moved to the next row and changed as three columns.

I have attached the screenshot here for reference

Help in what way? Avoiding the problem or fixing it?

It looks as if you use a script to size the columns -- if that's the case then the sizer needs to be fixed.

If on the other hand you place content in an existing table, then after inserting the content you should check whether there are any overset cells and fix them. The simplest (and probably the quickest) test to check whether a table contains overset cells is this one:

 

 

if (myTable.cells.everyItem().overflows.join('').indexOf('true') >= 0) {
  // the table has at least one overset cell
}

 

 

If there are overset cells, look for them and widen the cell until it's no longer overset or decrease the type size to fit the cell's content to the cell.

Hi Peter,

 

Yes, you're correct. I have fitted the cell content.

Now my problem is the code value moves to the second row after update then it appears as a 3 column, what to do for this scenario???????

Your help in this query is appreciated.

Hi @jothipriya,

@Peter Kahrel already gave you an idea to follow

By @Peter Kahrel 

Did you try that? If no then do try and if yes then provide more details on what did not work. Share the code snippet accordingly so that someone can point out areas that can be changed.
