Free Lynda.com Video: Adding Continued Headers to Tables
When I first started laying out pages using a computer, there were no dedicated tools and features for working tables. In fact, the software I was using didn’t even allow you to make a real table; we just faked it using manually-positioned text boxes and lines. It tedious just to create a table, and even worse to edit a table when the content had to change.
Now, many years later, we have some good table tools in InDesign, but it can still be tedious to deal with complex tables. There’s just a lot to learn and watch out for. That’s why we did The Tables Issue of InDesign Magazine, and that’s also why you should watch the latest free video in the InDesignSecrets series at Lynda.com. In the video, David Blatner shows a clever trick for making headers for tables that span multiple pages, where you’d want the word “continued” to appear on all pages except the first page of the table. If you ever have to work with long tables in InDesign, definitely check out the video.
