The Format (Table) Dialog Box allows you to control the overall appearance of a table.
To bring up the Format (Table) Dialog Box right click anywhere on the table and choose "Format (Table)". Any changes made will apply only to the current table.
The Format (Table) Dialog Box has the following settings:
Include Subtitle: When checked, an additional row below the title row is added to the table. You may enter a subtitle to the table by double clicking on the new row and typing in the text for the subtitle.
Include Pagenote: When checked, an additional row is added at the end of the table. You may enter a pagenote for your table by double clicking on the new row and typing in the text for the pagenote. Pagenotes are displayed at the bottom of each page of the table.
Include Endnote: When checked, an additional row is added at the end of the table. You may enter an endnote for your table by double clicking on the new row and typing in the text for the endnote. Endnotes are displayed only once per table, at the bottom of the last page of the table.
Stub Reader Breaks: Sets the frequency of reader breaks in the rows of the table. Reader breaks are blank rows used to break up the table. By default there are no reader breaks. The frequency of reader breaks may be set anywhere from 1 (every other row is blank) to 10 (every 10th row is blank). Note that you can hide individual reader breaks by right clicking on them and selecting Format (Stub). This allows for finer control over placement of reader breaks.
(Stub reader break frequency set to 3.)
Stub Leadering: Allows you to set a pattern such as ‘….’ or ‘_ _ _ _’ to appear in each row of the table between the end of the stub text and the start of the next column. You may choose different patterns for the stubs on the left and right sides of the table. Note that stub leadering is only visible in print preview and on the printed page.
(Stub leadering on both left and right)
Borders: Allows you to set the borders on the top, left, bottom and right sides of the table. Each side may have no border, a thick border or a thin border.
