Chapter 10. Working with Tables > Changing Table Lines, Borders, and Fills

Changing Table Lines, Borders, and Fills

One part of a table's effectiveness is lines, which help the reader better understand the information. For tables in which a user needs to fill in information, lines also help show where to enter appropriate data. By default, WordPerfect surrounds each cell with a single line, giving the appearance that the table also is surrounded by a single line. In fact, there is no border at all around a WordPerfect table. In addition to lines, you can fill the entire table or individual cells with varying patterns or colors of shading.

Understanding Default Line Styles

The default style for table lines is a single line. Although it might seem that a single line appears on all four sides of a cell, only two sides typically make up a cell: the left and the top. If you were to “explode” a typical table of three rows and three columns, the cells would resemble the cells shown in Figure 10.34. (Notice that lines appear on the right and bottom sides of cells on the right and bottom of the table.)
