Ldina Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 I need some help creating fractions in Tables, preferably using some sort of number style or text style, rather than manually formatting each fraction one-by-one, which is very time consuming. I create a lot of tables for Engineering companies, which include combinations of numbers and fractions. Many columns of data will have integers followed by fractions. Some customers want a hyphen between integer and fraction, and other customers do not want any hyphens, so I need to be able to configure both. For example, the same column may have numbers (with or without hyphen), such as: 1-½ 35-7/64 18-¼ 165-17/32 I need small fractions, not that do not use full sized characters. Some fonts have common fractions pre-built, (e.g., ¼, ½, ¾, etc) but I am often required to create fractions using 16ths, 32nds, 64ths, etc (e.g., 17/64, 3/32, etc). Sometimes the integer before the fraction will have a single digit, two digits, three digits, etc. And sometimes, an integer suffices without any following fraction. I can manually change a fraction in the Character Panel, but that takes forever with a lot of data. I've been able to create text styles that render the entire table cell as a fraction, but I need an Integer followed by a Fraction. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this in Publisher Tables or even with Character/Paragraph Styles. Can anyone help with this? Thank you.
