Chapter 75. Formatting Tables > Editing a Table’s Structure

Editing a Table’s Structure

Tables almost never spring into being perfectly; you’ll likely need to change the overall size of the table or of the rows and columns, add or delete rows or columns, merge two or more cells into one, or split a cell into smaller cells. It’s all possible, and it’s all easy.

Scaling the Entire Table

InDesign allows you to scale an entire table by dragging. First, click anywhere in the table with the Type tool, and move the cursor over the lower-right corner of the table. When you see the diagonal double-headed arrow cursor (see Figure 75-5), drag to scale the table. Holding down the Shift key constrains the scaling proportionally. (You can’t scale a table if the table spans more than one text frame.)
