Chapter 7. Working with Tables > Formatting Tables and Cell Contents

Formatting Tables and Cell Contents

Once you have the layout of your table set to your liking, you can begin working on the formatting of the text and graphics within the table. You can also control the thickness and color of the table and cell borders. You'll use the Text Inspector for dealing with table text, and the Graphic Inspector for borders. Working with cell backgrounds, another table attribute, will be covered in “Adding Cell Backgrounds and Graphics,” later in this chapter.

When you select the entire table, and then use the controls in one of the Inspector's panes, the changes are applied to the entire table, including the contents of all the cells in the table. You can set alignment for the contents of all of the cells, and there are separate controls for horizontal and vertical alignment (Figure 7.18). The alignment controls work for text within the cell, but not graphics.
