Chapter 9. Working with Tables > Optimizing Cell Layout, Size, and Appearance

Optimizing Cell Layout, Size, and Appearance

Just as tables have properties, so do the individual cells within them. Cell properties determine whether cells are considered data or header cells, the alignment of information within them, their width and height, and much more.

Designating Header Cells

When you create a table, its cells are designated as data cells by default. Typically, this means that the cells are left-aligned and not displayed in bold font. To designate cells as header cells and change their default formatting to bold, centered text, select the cells you want to work with, right-click, and then select Cell Properties. Then, in the Cell Properties dialog box, choose Header Cell under Layout.
