adding a cell to multiple tables

Hello, I have a long, table-laden nisus doc--there are five or so different tables on each page of the document. I need to add the same sized cell to multiple simple tables--to insure uniformity across the document. One type of table is being used something like a header on each page of about half t...

follow-up

Martin (and ProfT) The macro that Martin provided seems to have worked. It took several minutes--it seemed to go thru the file in steps--and tho I haven't looked thru the end result to see if anything unplanned happened along the way, it generally looks like I expected it to. And the opening speed i...

ProfT and Martin--thanks again, I'll try simply selecting more than a single table tomorrow. (something to do while I look out the window at cherry blossoms!)

Martin, Thanks a lot for that macro, tho I'll have to approach that carefully--I'm even less 'fluent' in macros than I am in tables. Still, this would be a great and very practical place to start. I think I'll pass a link to this thread on to the author of the textbook, who apparently has a backgrou...

Yes, great, and thanks much. :) I'd missed that command.

(too bad, tho that I'll have to do it table by table)

is it possible to easily convert tables to text?

Hello, I've read with interest about the time lag problems with leopard--I'm using an older G4 at 1ghz, NWP (1.0.3), and 10.5.2 now. I'm dealing with an 88-page document that uses a large number of tables with very little other text (1-4 tables per page). Without NWP already running, it takes almost...

aersloat--I share your grief, but I haven't found any suitable substitute for the type of outlining in appleworks. I sure wish something comparable (modernized) was available that would read/convert those AW files! I've got scads of documents--things like lecture notes--that I still go back to AW for.

straight quotes and curly quotes in the same document

I had this problem once and asked here--as I recall the answer that solved my "problem" came from two people here. I was importing (English) text from documents that had come from machines used here in Japan, and I was getting curly quotes in one part of a file and straight in another part. It turne...

Mark and Craig, Thanks for the suggestions. I had tried "re-fonting" the whole document--first going to MS RMincho and then to Times New Roman. But I hadn't considered applying a language (English) to these documents... VIOLA! It works! And it is only now that I've noticed that the flag symbol at th...

getting, & not wanting, curly/straight quotes--in same d

I've assembled several documents recently. They contain mostly English with a few lines of Japanese here and there. Within the same document (the English sections) in one place if I type a word like don't I get curly quotes, but if I move to another place and type the same I get a straight apostroph...
