Default table properties, Autotext, and autoformatting

Hello!

We're building templates that include the common features in either autotext
or set with shortcut keys. For our tables, I set 2 styles (table Headers and
table text), and then I set table properties in table-autoformat. This seems
to work somewhat similar to the table properties in FrameMaker. First
question can being he

* I can't figure out how to assign paragraph styles to section using table
autoformat features. Is there some obscure way I'm missing?

To continue, I've them created several tables with varying columns and
placed them in Autotext so that they can easily be retrieved and used. When I
transfer autotext entries from one template to another (creating somewhere
around 20 templates), table properties don't seem to go with the tables. So
if the user uses autotext to insert a table, the table comes in with some
weird standard formatting. I can't figure out how/if this can be edited. I do
bring in the new autoformat table style. I've also tried to edit the Table
NOrmal style, and it's grayed out.

Help, please!

Hi ?B?c2hlaWxhbQ==?=,

No, it's not supported.

I've them created several tables with varying columns and
placed them in Autotext so that they can easily be retrieved and used. When I
transfer autotext entries from one template to another (creating somewhere
around 20 templates), table properties don't seem to go with the tables. So

weird standard formatting. I can't figure out how/if this can be edited. I do
bring in the new autoformat table style. I've also tried to edit the Table
NOrmal style, and it's grayed out.

I think this would depend on a number of factors: the default table style set on
for the user profile. The definitions of built-in table styles (if you're using
built-in styles).

Best would probably be to
1. Create your own table styles (don't re-use built-in ones)
2. Copy these into the target template, first
3. Then copy in the AutoText entry
