Chapter 9. Working with Tables > Customizing Table Layout, Size, and Appearance

Customizing Table Layout, Size, and Appearance

Drawing or inserting tables is the easy part; getting tables so that they have the exact layout, size and appearance you want takes a bit more work. Don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging without a few pointers—customizing your tables is exactly what this section is all about.

Positioning Tables Precisely for Alignment and Text Flow

Often a table you’re creating will be a part of a larger document. For example, you may be adding a weekly sales record by region to a quarterly sales report, or you may be adding feature comparisons to your product page. In this case, you probably want to align the table so that it is centered, or on the left or right side of the page. You’ll also probably want to specify how text or other page elements should flow around the table. For example, if a table has a left alignment, you might want text to flow around the right side of the table. Or you might want a table to be centered with no text to the left or right of it.
