Chapter 20. Using Tables > Working with Tables

Working with Tables

Table cells behave much like Word paragraphs: Text within a cell can be formatted, centered, indented and spaced, bulleted and numbered, with borders and shading, and each cell can have its own tab stop settings. All cell formatting is stored in the end-of-cell marker, which you can see only when paragraph marks are showing (click the Show/Hide ¶ button on the Standard toolbar, or choose Tools, Options, and select the Paragraph Marks check box on the View tab).

Selecting Cells, Rows, and Columns

Select data within a cell just as you select data in a paragraph; if you want to transfer cell formatting, make sure you pick up the end-of-cell marker. 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 up and to the right, click to select the whole cell. Or you can click inside the cell and choose Table, Select, Cell.
