I have a word document for UAT procedures that has over a hundred tables, which have -- very professionally -- been set up with the same properties.

But now I have changed the page margins of the template, making the textarea a few pixels wider, so the width of the tables has to be changed from its current 670px to 100% (using a percentage means never having to change it again).

I've also introduced new paragraph styles for tables, which allow me to get rid of the (unstable-and-cause-other-problems) cell margins of the tables.

The Problem

When ms proudly introduced the next-to-useless, unwanted, annoying pop-up lollipops for adding rows and columns to tables (which, in the next update, they had to make optional, because damned-near everyone wanted to switch the damned things off!), they broke the option to select multiple tables, so I now have to go to each table, open its properties dialog, and make the changes to each table individually.

Well over an hour's work that would previously have taken less than three minutes.

{sigh}

At least this kind of thing doesn't happen with VS, because ms' own developers have to use it.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
