Chapter 17. Using Tables > Working with Tables

Working with Tables

Table cells behave much like Word paragraphs: They can be formatted, centered, indented and spaced, bulleted and numbered, with borders and shading, and can have tab stops. The formatting is stored in the end-of-cell marker, which you can see only when paragraph marks are showing (choose Tools, Options, View tab, check the Paragraph Marks box).

Selecting Cells, Rows, and Columns

Select data within a cell just as you select data in a paragraph; make sure you pick up the end-of-cell marker, just as you pick up the paragraph mark, if you want to transfer paragraph formatting. Alternatively, you can select everything in a cell (including the end of cell marker) by letting the mouse pointer hover over the left side of the cell. When it turns into a thick arrow pointing to the right, click to select the whole cell. Or you can click inside the cell and choose Table, Select, Cell.
