Colorize Intersection of Selection

This script, based upon the script template provided on the table editing page, uses both the unique and inherited properties of a cell, to style an existing table, so that a specific cell or cells are highlighted as an intersection.

It provides examples of these techniques:

  • Deriving the parent rows and columns of a selection range (27-28)
  • The application of styling properties to ranges (31-50)

Here’s the script:

To use the script, simply select one or more contiguous cells, and run the script. The parent rows and columns of the selected cells will be colorized.


TIP: use the Table to Image script to save the table as an image file to share the highlighted table with others.
