morning... 🙂
i want to use the same table in two differente sized documents
i use "place and link" function
documents use different page size and style.

no problem to update tabel+char+paragraph styles

the problem occurs with columns width: when i modify the original table in DOCA and update linked table in DOCB, table width explode to original sizes.

I know indd doesnt keep table width in table style, but could you suggest a workaround?

ps: I cant use frame maker 😉

A table or cell style cannot save width with standard means in InDesign. My workaround is either to make master/parent pages with guide lines for tables. It is fast to drag the columns of a table to such a guide line. Or for different table types I have either different guide lines on a different layer, which I can hide if not needed.
