Is there any way when opening a PDF table page that was done with InDesign's table utility that will maintain the table grid? I tried one simple table and it came over fine--size & dimensions of cells, etc., but all the rules, horizontal & verticle, were individual line segments. The box-heads were also separated objects and not "within" the table head areas.Methinks I may have to stay with InD for this kind of work. SHUCKS!

Attached is source InD (CS6) doc, PDF created from same, and .afpub file result. Any ideas?

HiĀ peterpica :)

Unfortunately we can't currently import tables from other applications and convert these to Affinity tables, so we convert the lines to curves to ensure document fidelity.

We may add support for this in the future, but we have no timescale for this currently, apologies!
