Chapter 36. Formatting Tables > Alignment and Spacing Around a Table

Alignment and Spacing Around a Table

A table always sits inside of a text frame, so you must also consider its relationship to that frame. Here are how some ways you can do that.

  • Horizontal Alignment. The table may not fill the width of the text frame. If that is so, then you can click an insertion point to the right or left of the table (the blinking insertion point should appear as tall as the table). Then use the Paragraph palette horizontal alignment controls to set how the table aligns to the frame.

  • Space Before and After. You can set the space above and below a table using the Space Before and Space After fields in the Paragraph palette, but you have to put the cursor in the same paragraph as the table (not inside the table). Or, put the cursor inside the table and choose Table Setup from the Table Options submenu (under the Table menu). In the Table Spacing section of the dialog box, you can set the space before and after values. Space Before doesn’t apply when the table is at the top of a frame.
