Have parameters for new tables default to <unspecified>

Post by chrispitude » Wed Mar 24, 2021 1:03 am

In a fresh install of Oxygen, the following table parameters are explicitly set by default on new tables:

Unfortunately this overrides the defaults we have in our CSS.

I don't want to force these settings to be undone in the CSS because a writer might need to set one of these parameters for a particular table. But, I think Oxygen's defaults for tables should be to leave these parameters unspecified:

image.png (11.39 KiB) Viewed 113 times

so that the CSS defaults are used, then have the writer specify them only when needed.

Has anyone else run into this?

Hi Chris,

I found an older related post:
topic15433.html?sid=1ecf289ec4151b90bb0bf1c247906b6b

by someone who seems to want the opposite, no matter what people select in the table configuration dialog the inserted table would always have rowsep, colsep and frame=all.
Maybe you can look at that post to see if my answers there help.

We have an internal issue named:
EXM-40841 More configurable parameters for DITA "Insert Table"

I added there links to both these posts.

Regards,
Radu
