Cannot remove lines and borders in tables

What a great tool Artisteer is. I'm not too intimidated by Joomla anymore. I have one problem. I have a couple of pages with some tables and I cannot remove the lines/borders around the table/cells. The color of the lives appear to be the same color (brown) used in parts of the theme. I want the content in the cells to be aligned but not show the lines. When I switch to a template not created with Artisteer the table lines appear exactly the way I need them, invisible. Is there some setting for this? The border width is set to 0px and no color in my editor (JCE).

Any help much appreciated.

I found the problem. It was in the template.css
border: solid 1px #BEB389;

changed to border: solid 0px ; fixed the problem.

Thanks anyway!

You can do this in Artisteer. Look under Articles, then under tables, then under boarder width.

Following is the complete styling rule(in your template.css) from which you can remove table border:

.art-article th, .art-article td
padding: 2px;
border: solid 1px #C7BC8F;
vertical-align: top;

At first, Artisteer is wonderful piece of software and thanks very much to the vendor. There is only a very few issues, but I am sure they will be fixes during the time.

And now to the Ted's answer: Ted is right and that "Table" setting in the "Articles" tab really fix that issue.
However then ".art-article th, .art-article td" is missing the information on colour etc. Therefore, later on, if in Joomla user wants to set up the border for some table different than 0, table doesn't show requesting border colour.

So I would suggest to the vendor to improve this issue. I think it could be useful if Artisteer saves other table settings also in the case that the border is set to “0”.

Anyway, in my opinion, Artisteer is wonderful software. There is almost nothing to be improved. Only some small issues as I have just mentioned.
Thank you very much and all the best.

as stated by pavol , it would seem that we face a minor delemor in regards to borders/no borders..

has anyone found a way in which to remove table borders through-out the template yet allow for certain tables to be individually styled when needed (some tables just need to be bordered)

I was thinking that perhaps this can be done in the back-end by assigning a class to the post's then styling the newly formed class in the template.css file.

however I am not sure as to weather this would work as it may be over-written by the Artisteer class's.

on the other hand if it indeed works , then it is a problematic way of getting the task done.

I always take all the styling off tables on artisteer, so there's no borders etc. Then I have a site table style which I can cut and paste into any article that has a table (you have to edit the html to do this). Something like:

<style type="text/css">

td.outerc {padding: 0px 0px !important; width: 50px !important; background: wheat !important;}
td.outerh {padding: 0px 0px !important; height: 50px !important; background: wheat !important;}
td.outerv {padding: 0px 0px !important; width: 50px !important; background: wheat !important;}
td.price {padding: 3px 3px !important; width: 151px !important;}
td {padding: 3px 3px 3px 3px !important; border-top: none !important; border-right: none !important; border-bottom: 2px solid wheat !important; border-left: none !important;}

Then when you create the table (also in html edit mode):
<td class="outerc" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% wheat ! important;"><img alt="" src="images/transparent.gif" style="width: 1px; height: 1px;" /></td>

<td class="outerh" style="text-align: center ! important;">

My challenge is to create a table in which the text or images in each cell are centered vertically and horizontally.

I've tried: (a) editing the artisteer table stylesheet (b) installing the "HD-Custom CSS" Module and applying the CSS to the table's page (c) inserting a stylesheet into the page itself and (d) (obviously) using the editors features to align text.

None of these work. The text wants to go into the upper left corner of each cell. Any suggestions? Thanks

I use the JCE editor (great!), I remove references by Garry, and I did what I want with tables (rows, columns, cells)

It would be great if people would include the version of Artisteer they are working with. This way, people can determine if the various posts and replies apply to them. Otherwise, people may waste time trying to find something that isn't there. Including Artisteer version numbers in posts and replies will save time and aggravation when using this forum.

For example - there is no "Articles" tab in Artisteer 4.2. In order to adjust table styling in Artisteer 4.2, you need to click on the Content tab, then click on Table item in the Style and Font section.
