[bksvol-discuss] Re: a really tough decision to make...

Valerye, My dad has Word 2007 on his computer, so I searched the help for converting text to table and here is what I found.


1. insert separator between columns of text. Separators are something like a tab or coma (,). Be sure that there is a paragraph mark where you want to begin a new row.
2. Select the text that you want to convert to a table.
3. In the insert tab go to the table group and select convert text to table.
4. In this dialog, select the type of separator you used, check the number of columns and select any other options. If the number of columns you expect to have is not available, there is probably a missing separator in one of the rows.


Also, to convert a table to text, it is on the layout tab, in the data group, under table tools, and convert table to text. You must have the table or rows that you wish to convert selected.

I agree that word 2007 is much more complicated to use, This is a perfect example. I mean shouldn't the convert text to table and convert table to text be in the same place? It was obviously a very convoluted mind that create Word 2007.

Word 2007 has no menus; just ribbons. YUCK! I will poke around and see if I can find them.

I hate the ribbons!  If I could go back to 2003, I would!

That's exactly what I do, also, and the tables have been preserved. *smile*

Valerie:

If I need to do tables, & they do work in word, I simply select the
text, go to the table menu, & select convert text to table. Have u
done this? Tabs as such are not retained but when u do the convert
text to table option, the conversion takes place & the bookshare tools
do not break them, at least so far as I am aware. If they've done some
new stuff, though, who knows?

I am guessing I would need to rescan this book,  then,  since it came
to me with spaces and tabs,  not the real tables.   I got it early in
my proofing,  before I was scanning. The original submitter bought and
sent me a copy of the book,  so I guess I could do it over as a BSO
and have someone else proofread it.   Are there special techniques for
preserving the tables in Word?   I seem to remember that posted way
back,  before it affected me...

Hi Valerie. Bookshare tools do retain text-based tables nicely. I have
verified this in several books I have submitted by looking at the
end result
in the daisy file. Bookshare files don't present tables exactly the
way they
look to you visually in Word. What they don't do is display images,
borders,
or shading as you see in Word. Daisy does support tables, and the
Bookshare
tools do recognize them during processing. They look more like HTML
tables
though. In your book, the checklists and tables will be retained.
The tabs
and borders won't show up, and that is because daisy books don't use
tabs.
They are based on a language called XML which is somewhat like what
you see
in pages on the web.

The Braille version of your book will show items on a single line if a
person is using a Braille display. This is because of the
limitations of the
Braille display, not in tables themselves. Most Braille displays can
only
show one line of text at a time.

I hope this helps.
