Reply to: Tables not rendered in XMetaL 11 and 12

You are correct that our customization is old.  It was originally developed ~2003 using XMetaL 3.  Your recommendation to add the element to the CTM file worked great (sort of).  Now I have the opposite problem, but it may be easier to deal with.  Existing tables now render correctly in Tags-on and Normal views, but a new table is incorrectly rendered when it is initially inserted.  However, after switching to Plain Text view then back to Normal or Tags-on view, the table is correctly rendered.  It seems that returning to Normal or Tags-on view from Plain Text view fires some sort of redraw event.  Is it possible to force that redraw event from macro code?
The attached picture illustrates the case.  A newly added 4×4 table is initially rendered as a 1×1 table, but after switching to Plain Text view and back to Tags-on view, the table is rendered correctly.  I am also looking at our macro code to see if we need to modify our InsertTable function.
You have been a great help.
