Table in List - A work around

Postby DocuWil on Mon Jul 21, 2008 11:30 pm

If someone has a more clever solution, please tell me. Anyway, I wanted to share this with you in the forum.
I made the following work around.
In the following example I wanted to clear out something special and present in my WebHelp as well as my Printed Documentation.
You can see there is a part in this list where you would like to use tabs. However, that is not working. Instead you can use a table.

If I just put in the table, the result would be:
TablePrinted.jpg

You can't use the div tag within a list.
So, I did the following:
TableFlareSettings.jpg

In my case I used a left border of 1 mm and a left padding of 13 mm.

I hope this little work around will help some of you.

Interesting nice tip.

I'm confused. Did you insert the table inside the list, or did you insert it just after the list (after the </li></ul> tags)? If you want it included in the list and indented, then you could click the "Make Simple Paragraph" option and insert a table into that paragraph. It'll follow the indenting rules of the list, so it'll automatically be lined up with the other text in the list item.

I used the Make Paragraph Item:
TableFlareSettings2.jpg

And ... if you just create the table without any changes, it will be looking good in the WebHelp, but not in the printed documentation.
Give it a try and you will see that the table will be positioned completely left aligned in the Word document.

Does this answer your question, Lisa?
