Resizing Tables
INSIDE OUT
I Want to Print Formatted Table Content Without Row and
Column Lines
If you want to remove all formatting in the table before printing, you can press
Ctrl+Alt+U; however, if you want to keep shading intact, for example, and remove only
the gridlines in the table, follow these steps:
1. Right-click the table.
2. Click Borders And Shading. In the Borders And Shading dialog box, click None
then click OK.
The borders are removed from the cells in the table and you can now print normally.
Resizing Tables
It’s not unusual to need to resize a table either while you’re creating it or soon after. When
you begin to create a table, you don’t always know how large it will be. Perhaps you add
more columns, include more information, or incorporate another set of data. Making the
change to a new size—larger or smaller—is straightforward. Word gives you options for
controlling the size of the table and offers flexibility for resizing your table exactly the way
you want. This section explains how you can work with Word to best handle table-sizing
issues.
Understanding AutoFit
Remember that when you create a table using the Insert Table dialog box, AutoFit is one of
the setup options available to you. With AutoFit you can automatically resize your window
as needed, and it is actually already working, by default, to create fixed column widths in
your table. AutoFit offers three options:
Fixed Column Width With this option, you can choose a specific width for the
columns you create.
AutoFit To Contents This adjusts the width of columns to accommodate the data
you enter.
AutoFit To Window Choosing this option sizes a table so that it its within a
document or Web browser window. This size changes depending on the size of the
window, which means that the table will be automatically redrawn as the user resizes the
window.
