Tables II: Table Tricks

The Cell Margins command opens the Table Options box where you can change default margins.

Change text alignment in a table.

Every cell in a table behaves like its own page with its own margins and alignment. You can change cell margins and alignment for either the entire table or for selected cells.

By default, the alignment and margins for cells in a table are identical. However, if you select a built-in style, you may affect text alignment.

You can change a table's margins (the default cell margins) by selecting the table, clicking the Layout tab, and choosing Margins from the Alignment group.

You can change text alignment for a cell, a group of cells, or the entire table by choosing one of the text alignment buttons in the Alignment group.

The Tables Property box has other alignment and margin options. You'll hear about those options later in the lesson.
