By changing the cell padding of a table cell, you can adjust the space between the border and contents of that cell. When designing a form, you can change the cell padding of the cells in layout tables (layout table: A collection of cells used to arrange form content such as text or controls.) and repeating tables (repeating table: A control on a form that contains other controls in a table format and that repeats as needed. Users can insert multiple rows when filling out the form.). When filling out a form, you can change the cell padding of cells in the tables that you inserted into certain types of rich text fields (rich text field: A field that can show formatting and graphics, such as an embedded object, and not just text.).
- Right-click the cell that you want to change the cell padding for, and then click Table Properties on the shortcut menu.
When filling out a form, this option may be unavailable for a table, depending on the design of the form.
- In the Table Properties dialog box, click the Cell tab.
- Under Cell padding, enter the specific measurements that you want for the cell padding.
