Good afternoon I am writing to ask you if there is the possibility in Robohelp to customize the templates of the tables to be inserted in the text. I tried through the content properties of the tables, but I failed.

You could also configure the table in a snippet. Then you can insert the snippet in a topic, right-click on the snippet and  select Snippet > Convert to HTML Text. Then you can add data as required for that topic.

You are limited to customising after import. What you could do is customise as required and then copy that table into a topic that you don't include in the build. I'm guessing you are using 2020 so you simply do not include that topic in a TOC.

 

Please follow this link to report bugs or request new features. https://tracker.adobe.com. Post the link to your bug report / feature request in this thread and others can vote for it. The more people who do so, the higher it gets prioritised.

 

You might be able to find the source tables in RoboHelp's source files but the danger is if Adobe later change the table, that could overwrite your customisation.

I have added a feature request to allow customised table templates or tables created from scratch to be saved as templates. Also for unwanted templates to be hidden.
