Enhancing the Appearance of Tables
You can apply color, use images, and use other formatting techniques to enhance the
visual appeal of your tables.
Here are ways to enhance a table’s appearance:
You can fill the background of an entire table or individual cells with different kinds of
color effects or with an image. See “Filling an Object with a Solid Color” on page 171
and “Filling an Object with an Image” on page 173 for instructions.
You can change the thickness and color of borders around a table and its cells, as
“Formatting Table Cell Borders” on page 199 describes.
You can adjust the attributes of text in table cells, including header and footer cells.
See “Formatting Text Size and Appearance” on page 82 and “Setting Text Alignment,
Spacing, and Color” on page 90 for details.
When you’ve created a visual effect that you want to reuse, you can copy and paste it.
Select the table or cells whose effects you want to reuse, choose Format > Copy Table
Style, select the table or cells you want to format, and then choose Format > Paste
