    Default Table & Text problems

    I am using NOF 10, Update 1. It is still very slow. In fact there is a
    noticeable time gap for many many operations.
    1. When choosing the table border color, first the colors do not show
    clearly in the layout area, then there is a gray background color still
    with the border, and the inside border lines continue to be gray.
    2. If you create a bullet and do a text paste, it automatically breaks
    the bullet and moves the pasted text to the next line. However if you
    enter something as the first character it does the paste fine.
    3. What is Fit Cells in the table menu? I noticed there is Fit to
    Contents in Help, is this same. Is there a way to automatically adjust
    the column width to its content.

    Thanks.

    Rajeev.

    Hi Rajeev,

    It would help to solve your problem if we could see the published code
    of the page(s) you are having this problem.

    Here are some general tips:

    1. Don't use the table properties interface to set cell border colors.
    Instead, use CSS. (NOF's table properties seem to still mix old HTML 4
    table formatting with CSS, and you can get weird results.)

    2. If you are pasting text content from MS Word or another windows
    application, make sure to set you paste options to "plain text". Then
    format the text as a bullet point in NOF. Otherwise the formatting from
    Word messes up NOF's text formatting.

    3. The help is a bit out of date. Can you tell us more about what you
    are trying to do here?

    1. Ok, I notice the changes. I had just set cell space to 0, and picked
    the border color. That's why it showed grayed solid line around table
    cells with different table border color. It seems one can make
    individual cell border lines of different types through CSS Common,
    Border button. However, is it possible to have cell space value 0, and
    have the inside cell borders of same color as table border in one
    settings. Doing individual settings for each cell is an overkill.
    Essentially a table with border and inside lines of same color.
    2. I think I got the text issue straightened out as you suggested. For
    unformatted text it pastes ok. However even though I set the default to
    unformatted text, when doing simple paste it treats it like formatted
    and shifts the text to the next line.
    3. What I meant that suppose I have text in table cell that wraps around
    in two lines. Now if I select Fit cells it does not show the content in
    one line. Can it be done?

    Thanks.
