Formatting Tables

Earlier, we mentioned that table cells are similar to InDesign text frames—and we now want to point out that that similarity extends to the realm of formatting, as well. Table cells can be filled using any fill you could apply to a frame, and can use all of the strokes in InDesign’s Stroke palette (including custom stroke styles).

To format table cells, however, you don’t (usually) use the same controls you use to format text frames, rectangles, ellipses, or other page items. Instead, you use a special set of table formatting controls, most of which you’ll find in the Table Options (see Figure 6-38) and Cell Options dialog boxes (see Figure 6-39).
