When I place a rtf file containing tables, the tables are imported as tabbed text.

I tested rtf files written by MS Word (PC), NeoOffice and Pages (Mac).

Not shure if this is to be considered a bug, but InDesign, Vivadesigner and even iCalamus do import tables in a rtf file as tables.

Publisher can't do inline table

Hm? – Meanwhile you can have a table inside a text frame and flowing as pinned inline object with the text:

Hm? That required doing it manually. That is a workaround. The original post asked if it was a bug that the Import converts the table to tabbed text and the answer is no.

Sorry, I must have misunderstood that you wanted to express "can't place/import" instead "can't do" in "Publisher can't do inline table at the moment."

It does work when I place a docx file, though. Inline tables and all.

Hi all,

This is not really a bug, but a missing feature. When we wrote RTF import, we did not have a table feature. So not importing tables is kind of expected. DOCX has been written after implementing Tables, hence why it's working. 

Thanks,

Gabe.
