You can only compensate for that if you change the height of the text frame(s) where the table rows are running through. So you first could change the height and then add the rows or the other way around. In any case there are two changes in composition.

Hi@rehana36276218 ,

you could change the height of the text frame holding that part of the table where you add or remove rows.

Or what do you have in mind to compensate for adding rows? Scale the contents of all rows before you add aditional rows?

If you wanted to have each page as a separate entity - then why have you linked TextFrames?

Or you should've made separate tables - and apply to them - or rather to parent paragraph - StartOnNextPage or StartInNextTextFrame.

Then - as already mentioned - resize bottom edge of the TextFrames to compensate for extra row(s) and resize local table/rows accordingly - manually every time you add/delete/resize row(s).

 

Anyway - it can still be automated 😉 

Can automate anything - as long as it doesn't require A.I.
