AutoFit menu, so that Word

Can I resize columns manually?
Yes, you can drag a column
boundary , the border to the right
of a column, until the column is
the desired width. Similarly, you
can resize a row by dragging the
row boundary , the border at the
bottom of a row, until the row is
the desired height. You also can
resize the entire table by dragging
the table resize handle , which is
a small square that appears when
you point to a corner of the table
(shown in Figure 3–46).
