Chapter 16: More Things to Insert on Your Slides
The most common mistake I make when drawing table cells is to
accidentally create diagonal borders. If you make this common mistake, just
press Ctrl+Z or click the Undo button, or use the eraser to erase the
diagonal border.
7. When you’re done, click outside of the table to finish drawing the table.
Figure 16-6 shows a table carved up into several cells, with various types of
line styles and line weights.

Applying style to a table
After you’ve created a table, you can set its style by using the controls under
Table Tools on the Ribbon. The easiest way to format a table is by applying
one of PowerPoint’s predefined table styles.
Before you apply a style, however, use the check boxes that appear at the left
side of the Design tab under Table Tools on the Ribbon. These check boxes
determine whether PowerPoint uses special formatting for certain parts of
the table:
Header Row: Indicates whether the style should format the first row
differently than the other rows in the table
Total Row: Indicates whether the style should format the last row
differently than the other rows in the table
Banded Rows: Indicates whether alternating rows should be formatted
differently
First Column: Indicates whether the style should format the first column
differently than the other column in the table
