Tables in InDesign CS4 with rounded corners

Is it possible to do this somehow?
Or you have to create a normal table with stroke set to none on the outer edges and surround it with a frame with corner effects of your choice?
How can you do this with individual cells? If you have a pretty large table (eg. 8 columns and 40 rows) it must be a pretty tedious work.

Cell borders can only have sharp, square corners. The only way is to draw another frame for the outer border of the table.
Oh, forgot this one: Paste the table into a round-corner frame of the appropriate size.

  • Table with rounded corners in CS5?

    I am dealing with an issue, I need a table with 2 rounded top-corners. The top row is a shade of black (and needs the 2 rounded corners.
    Here is what I do:
    I make my table with a regular straight angled top-row in it's own text-frame. Then adjust the frame to the table (cmd-alt-c). Select the arrow selection tool, cut the text-frame with the table. Then create a new text-frame with 2 rounded top corners. Then past the table into this new frame.
    What now happens is that the table does not snap to the 0 point of the new frame, but it insets on the left side. When I make it align right it does it the other way around. Plus the part of the top-frame with the shade of black does not cut of on the rounded part of the frame.
    I know another option is to create a text-frame with the rounded corners on exactly the size I need it in the table, and then paste this into the top frame of the table (making sure the inset is 0). But I would like to use this as a last resort.
    We have a preference for the first option I wrote about, since we are linking Excel files and then creating InCopy content. (If a table is not placed in a seperate text frame and then linked to the floating text, InDesign loses the link to the Excel.)
    Is this at all possible? From this site it seems it is ( http://www.justskins.com/forums/table-with-rounded-corners-117551.html )

    I first tried it in a text frame. Now when I do a 'paste into' in an image frame it seems to work, but now I have an extra frame in my workflow
    Table => text frame => image frame with rounded corners => text frame
    Ideal would be:
    Table => text frame with rounded corners => text frame
    But I am starting to believe that this is not possible in InDesign (since it moves the table in the frame)
    Now I will try to figure out if my Excel links will still survive in InCopy with the image frame option.

  • Table with Round corners

    Hi,
    I have a requirement to display the table with Rounded corners,Please guide with the possibilities on this.
    Best Regards,
    Mahi

    Hi Mahi,
    Its not feasible with the tables provided in MS Word. If its going to be a fixed table then you can try this workaround. Have a rounded rectangle shape on the table cell with same size. And also you can have a 'NO Fill' for it or 'bring the text in front' options.
    You can have a look at [http://www.ecrion.com/Support/Resources/XSL-FOTutorial/Paragraphs.xml.html] -> 'Rounded Borders' section. The rounded corners didnt work for me in 10.1.3.4.1. You can give it a try.
    Hope this helps,

  • Test: Using Crop marks in indesign CS4 with Epson 3800 Mac 10.5.7

    Jun 19, 2009 9:35 PM
    Crop marks using indesign CS4 with Epson 3800 Mac 10.5.7
    My crop marks and pages are printing larger than my document sizes.  My paper size is 13x19, so I should have crop marks at the exact corners of the page sizes.  But indesign is printing the entire document larger.  So my document which is 11x14.75 is now printing 11.25x15.5.  All my settings are correct. So, is anyone else using an Epson 3800 with CS4 indesign having issues such as the above?  And can I ask (beg) a few of you to do a test print with crop marks and let me know the results?
    My workflow has been completely stalled because I can't get my pages to print the right sizes with the crop marks at the right measurements.  I'm printing a photo portfolio on the Lumijet double sided paper and "when" it did work awhile back sometime several months ago, the finals looked great. I've already reinstalled both the Epson 3800 driver and the Indesign CS4 software, but the results are still the same.
    So, here are my settings:
    document size: 11x14.75
    in the print panel:
    Printer: Epson 3800
    Setup: Paper size: Super A3/B13x19, scale 100% width & height, page position Centered
    Marks & Bleed: Marks: "Crop Marks" checked. offset: 0, weight: .25, Bleed and Slug: Use Document bleed settings, include slug area.  The bleed is 0 for top, bottom, left and right
    Color Management: Document profile: Adobe RGB, Options: Indesign handles colors, Printer Profile: (A custom made profile using Xrite for the 3800 with Lumijet paper)
    The settings on the Epson 3800
    Epson 3800 Printer
    Presets (set for the profile mentioned above)
    No Color management
    Sometimes, on a whim, the printer and indesign cooperate together like good little children should. But not often.  And I can not conclude why they are nice to each other sometimes, but given the same detailed data at other times, they fight.
    If anyone could run through a similar process using indesign with a photo layout and setting up the printer settings for both the Epson 3800 and in the indesign program and let me know their results, I would value your conclusions very much.  You don't even have to waste paper or ink.  Finally, after wasting so many pages of paper and of ink. I deleted the photos from the page, and printed it blank with only the crop marks for me to measure if it was coming out right or not.
    Thank you for any response.  And feel free to call me if you want to vent about Epson 3800's or about Indesign CS4 anytime! I'm up late....  646 256 8853.

    I specified the paper size as strictly 13x19, no boarderless, no retain size.  Same problem.   I also did as you suggested below.  The pdf document does remain true to the document.  As a pdf doc. I changed the color mgmt to Adobe rgb 1998.  It looks okay, but not as lively as I get when printing correctly with my color mgmt working and in sync. 
    Your final question about simply using photoshop.  Well... I might go back to it and give up on Indesign if this is the case that it won't simply crop my documents to the sizes that I input them to be cropped as.  But, I am using Indesign so that I can create a page layout that I can't do in Photoshop.  My folio is about 25 or more pages with double page spreads.  I am printing on a two-sided Lumijet paper and my folio was custom designed to be cut out at 11x14.75.  If and when it is printed correctly, I am printing on both sides of the paper and trimming it to exact size.
    It sounds as if you have exhausted the potential problems and don't have a clear explanation for why the doc isn't printing correctly in Indesign either with the color mgmt. or the document sizes.  I'll try one more print using a different color profile similar enough to get at minimum, an okay print. If it doesn't print at least okay, then it isn't most likely my profile..... Okay done.  Crazy.  The color is inaccurate, but for some reason or another, the document size printed correctly. It measured exactly 11x14.75.  What I have done during this period of time is:
    First) I did as you suggested and turned the Print to Adobe PDF 9 and created a print there. I measured it and it did measure correctly.  I didn't love the color, but... at least it is measuring correctly. 
    Second) I turned the Printer back to Epson 3800 (I'm beginning to think that this simple gesture was what caused the printer to print correctly)  I didn't change any settings, but I did make sure that they were set correctly as before. The paper size was set to 13x19.  When I make sure this setting is right in the "printer" dialogue for the Epson 3800, and then switch back to ID, the printer dialogue in Id changes to "Define by Printer."  But I changed nothing, other than the profile to an older one that I used before. The color is still inaccurate, but at least for two prints just now back to back, the measurements were correct.   What to do? Lol.
    Thanks again for all of your time spent trying to resolve this issue.
    Sincerely,
    Thaddeus

  • Box with rounded corners displays as rectangle in Web Browser

    I am using the box control (IBoxObject) in my Crystal Reports with rounded corners. However the box displays as a rectangle with square corners when viewed in a web browser. I have tried this in IE 7.0.5730.13, Firefox 3.0.3 and Chrome 0.2.149.30 all give the same problem.
    The interesting thing is that the boxes display correctly at design time and when exported to PDF, but they wonu2019t display correctly in IE/Firefox/Chrome. Here are the specific settings for the box:
                    CornerEllipseHieght = 375
                    CornerEllipseWidth = 375
                    Crystal Reports Version 10.5.3700.0
    I have also attached an image to try and clarify the problem.
    [Picture showing Box at design time, in a Web browser and when exported to PDF|http://i38.tinypic.com/10p6k1v.jpg]
    Thanks in advance for any help with this issue.
    -John

    Thank you Ted, this was my take on the problem but it is good to have a confirmation.
    There are CSS (HTML) solutions for creating boxes with rounded corners, such as [SpiffyBox|http://www.spiffybox.com/] and [CSS Rounded Box Generator|http://www.neuroticweb.com/recursos/css-rounded-box/index.php?idioma=en] and many more that can be found using [Google|http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cssboxeswithroundedcorners&btnG=Google+Search&meta=].
    Do you know of any plans to support rounded corners in the future?
    Thanks for your help!

  • Cropping with rounded corners

    I am preparing portrait images to be put on a page. I would like to use the cropping tool to a specific size and end up with rounded corners on the image.
    How can this be done?
    Thanks,
    Mary Lou

    John, is there s ome way I can send you a copy of that image to look at?
    The original picture was taken where there was a red backdrop. I selected the person and removed her from the backdrop, placing the image on a plain blue background.
    I have flattened the image so I don't know any way that the old red background would be there anymore. As soon as I apply the rounded corner rectangle tool there is a redness to the marquee.

  • Problem with Rounded Corners on EPS object in Illustrator CS3

    I'm using Illustrator CS3 and I have an EPS object which has rounded corners. When I export  the object and save it as a JPG the exported image takes on the shape of  the artboard (which is a square) rather than the shape of the EPS  object which is a square with rounded corners. I've placed the exported  JPG into my blog but when I look at it I can see a little bit of white  in each of the four corners. What can I do to stop this from happening?  In other words, I want my exported JPG image to have rounded corners  without the white. Please provide me  with as much detail as you can as I'm fairly new to Illustrator and I'm still finding my way. Thank you.

    Hi Graccon,
    The JPG format does not support transaprency. Either save as a gif or as a png. Or choose a matte color which matches your page background for the jpg.

    Here you go. It's usually a good idea to use a white rather
    than black
    object to paste inside of.

  • AP Div with Rounded Corners

    Hi All,
    I want to draw an AP Div but I want it to have rounded corners.  The reason being is that when I add a seperate background it will be more obvious and look better.
    If anybody knows of a better way of adding a body of text with it's own background and rounded corners please can you let me know how to do it?
    Many Thanks
    Big_Gee

    Wow Big_Gee!  I think that's a Big_Question!
    For a start, you can add rounded corners using CSS3 but it isn't widely supported accross all browsers.  I don't think that DW will add those CSS rules but it won't take too much to find sample code on the web with a quick Google search on CSS Rounded Corners or something.  Nancy O has recently responded to a rounded corner question here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/657158?tstart=30.  I don't konw if it makes a difference that you want the effect on AP Divs or not.  I haven't read that you can't.
    Adding a background image is achieved with CSS and you might be able to think about putting the rounded corners on the image in your graphics editor.  That will depend partly on how flexible you site is and whether users can increase text size in the browser.
    If you are using AP Divs (position: absolute) you need to be a bit cautious.  General advice is to use them very sparingly and when other options don't achive what you want.

  • Problems with 'Round Corners'

    Hi everbody,
    First of all, sorry for my bad englisch. I'm German
    Here's my problem:      step 1: i'm writing a word and then i'm using the effect ‘create outlines‘ in the type menu.
                                      step 2: after that i'm using the filter ‘round corners‘
                                       But not all corners are round after that. I've problems with the letter ‘S‘. Just 2 corners are round and the ohter two are                                    unchanged.
    Does anyone know what the problem could be?
    Thank you very much!

    Simon,
    I see what you see.
    Unless you have CS6, you should be able to use the free Round Any Corner script on the relevant Anchor Points, available here:

  • Compatibility of InDesign CS4 with CS3 or CS5

    My situation is this: I'm working in InDesign CS4 at the moment and need someone else to work on the same files on a separate machine.
    The separate machine MAY have CS3 installed or they may need to buy a new copy of InDesign, in which case I imagine they would end up buying CS5. (Or is it still possible to buy CS4 products??)
    My question is this: if they buy CS5, I imagine they will have no problems opening the files I work on, but will I have problems when I open the files they have saved? Will I be able to?
    Simlarly: If they have CS3, will they be able to open the files I work on?
    In other words: what is the best solution for our situation short of me having to upgrade to CS5?
    Thanks for any light you can shed.

    The best solution is you should all be working in the same version. If this is a short-term project you may be able to work with a trial version (for earlier versions see http://forums.adobe.com/message/2729885#2729885 for a link to a blog posting with directions and direct download links).
    If that won't work, be sure nobody is using any features in the newer version that are not supported in the older version and be preapred for text to reflow (which won't happen inthe newer version opening an older file until you start to edit). CS4 to CS3 requires export to .inx from CS4 and CS3 must be patched to 5.0.4. CS5 to CS4 requires export to .idml from CS5, and CS4 should be patched to 6.0.5.
    Note that trying to callborate using two versions is pretty much a recipe for trouble.

  • Is it possible to have a PDF with rounded corners?

    Hi
    I've been asked to create a pdf (which is just for on screen, not print), which when viewed has rounded corners.  Is this possible?  The original design is in illustrator.
    Thanks
    S

    Realistically, no. PDF pages are always rectangular, and while there are techniques to place some interactive content partly-outside the page region it's not a practicable way to simulate rounded corners.
