    'Don't add space' non-functional in cells? (Word 2002 SP-2)

    "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" is a nice feature, but it's apparently non-functional within table cells. Is there some setting I can tweak to fix this?

    I can replicate the problem. I'm also running SP2. Maybe this "bug" was fixed in SP3? Testers wanted.

    I thought initially that this is by design but it appears to be a plain old bug. Certainly table styles can include paragraph formatting attributes that will override the paragraph style and paragraph format settings. It doesn't appear to override this little nasty though it can override the paragraph indentation.

    I would be careful about relying on using this setting normally though as Word 2000 and Word 97 don't support it and lots of people still run with this software. The fact that it doesn't work inside a table (with Word 2002) tells me that perhaps it has some way to go before being as useful as it could be.
