Yes, this is embarrassing. For some time, it’s been really hard to style tables in Mimiran, due to conflicts with style sheets in the app. There’s no good reason for this, but once it was in place, changing it might mess up tables already in place.

Borderless Tables

Borderless Tables

For example, in the table above, there are no borders, even if you set the borders in the Table Property editor.

This is now fixed.

Tables that did not have any style classes associated with them now have a class of “legacy-borderless” which has associated styling to make it look the same way it did before. In other words, nothing should have changed with your old content.

If you have a table with a style class (for example, the “modern” table style), and you have also tried to set the borders, you might have some extra border elements in your table. Just remove the border number on the Table Properties tab.

Removing Legacy Styling

Removing Legacy Styling

If you want to remove the “legacy-borderless” style:

  1. Right click on the table in the editor and click on Table Properties in the context menu.
  2. On the Advanced tab, remove the “legacy-borderless” entry from the Stylesheet Classes box.

Adding Your Own Styles

Adding Your Own Styles

You can set your own border styles now simply by setting the Border Size in the Table Properties panel.

If you are on the Growth Plan, you can also assign your own stylesheet classes in the advanced tab and set up your styles under your account settings.

Styling Individual Cells

Styling Individual Cells

You can also style individual cells, including the background and border color. When right clicking on the table, just select Cell Properties from the context menu.

Your Table

Your Table

Borders, merged cells, colored backgrounds, all done through the context menu and Table and Cell Properties panels.

You can do more advanced things with the Stylesheet Classes if you wish.
