Chapter 10. Working with Tables > Formatting Table Text

Formatting Table Text

The preceding section focuses primarily on features that help you create the layout, or structure, of a table. It is also important that you make sure that the text itself contributes to the effectiveness of your presentation. Therefore, you need to understand how text attributes and text alignment apply to table cells.

Understanding Formatting Precedence

Each time you choose a text formatting option, you have to consider whether that attribute should apply to the entire table, to a column, or to a cell or group of cells. Whether a change you make affects a cell depends on the priority that change has. Changes you make to a specific cell or group of cells have precedence, or priority, over changes you make to columns. Changes made to cells or to columns have precedence over changes made to the entire table.
