Using table styles for uniform appearance
using table styles for uniform appearance
If you’re writing a document that has lots of tables, it can be
hard to keep them all manually formatted the same way, using
the same fonts, sizes, borders, shading, and so forth. That’s
where table styles are useful. Word 2013 supplies a large assort-
ment of styles from which to choose. You can modify a built-in
style or create your own and add it to the table style gallery.
Then, you can apply the same table style to each table to main-
tain a uniform look throughout your document.
The fonts and colors used by the built-in table styles are deter-
mined by the theme that’s currently applied to the document. If
you change to a different theme, the formatting of all the tables
will change at once. When you create your own table style,
it’s a good idea to choose its fonts and colors from the theme
offerings, as well.
Apply a built-in table style
1 Click in a table.
2 On the Design tab under Table Tools, in the Table Style Options
group, check or clear any of the options.
The options affect the appearance of the styles in the Table Styles
group. ( Banded rows and columns use alternating shading colors to
make the data easier to read.)
In the Table Styles group, click a thumbnail picture.

the gallery.
