Tables Be Still

Recommended Posts

Why do the words in tables move around when you type in another column? Is there a way to make everything be still. Also, if I line words up on the side and then try to insert a pic, it moves my words. Is there a way to stop this?

If I understand you correctly, you would need to fix the widths if each column to prevent things moving like that. I'm not an expert with FrontPage, but hopefully a FrontPage user will be along to help you out.

Right click on your table, and choose "Table properties". There should be an option in there to specifically set the widths (and a lot of other aspects about your table).

When I right click on table properties, I don't see any options to set width. Also, why is it if I make a table and form it into a square, move it to the left of the page, it won't let me put anything on outside of the table on the right?

To do that you would have to nest your table inside another table with two cells.

Well, I've got FP2000, so things might be a bit different. There has to be an option somewhere to set the table width. Look in the help file...it should tell you where in there.

I put a table (1x1) to the left. I clicked on float and was able to put text to the right of the table. Then I went underneath the table and created a new table (1x7) to act as a navigation bar. It looks perfect in design, but when I look in preview, the second table is moved over to the far right. If I try to put a table beneath the second table and then one beside it (to create columns), the tables shift around in the wrong places. I did find the "width", but it's tricky because it's in percent or pixels, so I'm just guessing. I just want the tables to stay put and to be able to put tables next to each other....arrgggg....

I managed to put a 3 column table beneath my navigation bar table. I even figured out how to make the text stay to the top instead of moving every time I would type in a different column (that was driving me nuts). Now I have one other problem - The table columns go way down the page. I can't seem to move the bottom of the table up to meet the end of the text. I've tried putting my curser on the bottom and dragging it up. I've tried backspacing it up. I've tried changing the height. Nothing works...another arrrggg...

I keep answering my own questions...well, I didn't actually find a way to fix the problem, so what I did was make a new table, copy and paste the info. in and delete the uncooperative table. That did the trick!
