7. Page Layout 101 > 7.4. Selecting Parts of a Table in Standard View

Selecting Parts of a Table in Standard View

Tables and their cells have independent properties. For example, a table and a cell can have different background colors. But before you can change any of these properties, you must first select the tables, rows, columns, or cells you want to affect.

Selecting a Table

There are a number of ways to select a table in the document window:

  • Click the upper-left corner of the table, or anywhere on the bottom edge of the table. (Be careful using the latter technique, however. It’s easy to accidentally drag the border, resetting the height of the table in the process.)

  • Click anywhere inside the table, and then select the <table> tag in the document window’s status bar (see Section 1.2.2 to learn about the tag selector).
