Text Formatting

Text inside a table cell acts almost exactly like text inside any text frame, and you can format it to your heart’s delight. If you need to format a bunch of cells in the same way, select them all before applying the attributes. You can even delete all the text from all selected cells by pressing the Delete key. Note that you can format table cells even with no text in them. That way, the text in each cell gets formatted automatically later, as you type.

Tabs within Tables

Ordinarily you wouldn’t type a tab character inside a table cell, but if you need one—to align decimal numbers within a cell, for example—you can add one by either using the Insert Special Character submenu (see Chapter 22) or by typing Option-Tab on the Macintosh. Alt-Tab switches applications in Windows, so set up your own keyboard shortcut.
