Hi all,

I want to make a table allways the same size, but still able to change rows and columns.
Do you know if this is possible?

not really sure I understand your question - tables generally don't change size unless you change them, even when you add rows to them

( I think there are 3 general options for tables, one of which is that changes only affect the limiting cells)

I have only two rows in the table, and I want that when I move the central line the entire table size doesn't change. This table should be almost the entire A4 paper.

I hope I made myself clear.

Thanks!!

I had assumed you meant the table width - this does stay fixed, what ever you set it to and however much you change the column widths.
Row hight does not work the same way.
I can't see how to do what you want with a table but as you only have four cells how about making a 2 column text frame, width relative 100% hight relative 50% boarders on and column divider on (if you want lines around your cells). Copy it and place the copy under the original. Now you will have a page divided into four.
Should you not want your rows equal in hight just drag the frames around to suite

Thank you for you idea, but this will not work, as the text flows from one column to the following one. What I do want is the content to stay within a cell.
Also, I will have to make lots of tables, and I will have to vary the row height in some of them.
