Q&A

Q1:Why shouldn't I center objects in a table cell by using the text alignment buttons?
A1: You can use the text alignment buttons to center an object. Doing so will add an additional tag around the selected object and then apply the Center property. Everything in the table cell might not be centered when you do this, however. Only the objects within the added tags will be centered. If you later add an object to the cell, it might or might not be centered, depending on exactly where the insertion point was when you inserted the new object. Using the alignment properties of a cell is the way to make certain all objects in the cell will have the alignment you want.
Q2:Every time I position a table cell, everything in the table moves! How can I prevent this from happening?
A2: You can't prevent it from happening, but you can make it easier by first positioning images and text in the upper-left corner and then working to the right and down. The cells are relative to the upper-left corner of the table, so you need to solidify the positioning in that area first.
Q3:I like fine-positioning table cells by using the arrow keys, but it takes a long time to move the cells across the screen. Any way to make it go faster?
A3: Hold down the Shift key while using the arrow keys to position table cells 10 pixels per keypress instead of a single pixel per keypress. Also, remember you can use the Zoom tool to see your design up close.
