In Word tables can help organize content in different ways. Learn all about editing tables in Word in this free lesson.
Once you have created your table, you may find that you need to format text within your table, insert or delete rows and columns, or perhaps just change the appearance of your table so it is more visually appealing.
Formatting text in tables
Fortunately, whatever you do to format text in a paragraph (make it bold green, for example), you can do to text in a table cell. Formatting text within a table can be accomplished through a variety of means, including the Formatting menu, the Tables and Borders toolbar, the task pane, and keyboard shortcuts.
Rotating text in tables
Many advertisements, for-sale signs, menus, and other creative documents use Word's text direction feature to change typical horizontal text to eye-catching vertical text. You can rotate text so it runs vertically, facing either the right or the left.
The insertion point rotates when entering vertical text, but editing vertical text is no different from editing horizontal text.
