In Writer is it possible to select all tables.

I have a document that has over 200 tables and I need to change the size of them in one go.

Is there any way to select them and make the change?

Also, is it possible to limit the selection, so it only selects tables that occur after the current position of the document (E.g. like "Search Down" in word).

If it's not possible, is there any addon that will help me?

To the best of my knowledge, this is not possible because tables are not defined by a style. The present "table style" is in fact nothing more than a template. Once a table is created, it loses any relationship with its "style".

The Navigator (F5 or side pane equivalent) can show you all tables. Double-clicking on a name sends the cursor in the first cell of the table. After that, you're on your own and must manually edit the size, apdding and other attributes with Table>Properties.

I remember discussing this issue (table styles) but I don't find enhancement request on I probably never wrote one. I could not either search the bug site because I get "software error". It seems my credentials are deeply corrupted.
