Reply to: Table rows in XMAX

If you select more than one cell in a table and then use the Selection or Range APIs they will only return the start of the selection. There is no way to obtain the start and end or something equivalent to that, so there would also be no way to walk through multiple cells (their elements) and set attributes for each.

There is also no Table Properties dialog provided with XMAX. I guess that would be the ideal.

To allow users to set attributes on multiple table cells (elements) with the current releases of XMAX I guess you would need to provide an alternative type of UI. You could prompt the user for the number of cells / rows to set the attribute for starting from the first one.
