Individual Table Cell Borders

Unread postby Rainer Oehry » Wed Dec 12, 2018 11:05 am

The answer will probably be No, but I'll aks anyway:

Is it possible to apply individual settings to the borders (width and/or colors) of selected cells, as I can do with the background color?

I am aware that I can put a single-cell table in a cell of the "surrounding" table and that I can then format this "internal" table/cell as required, but this only gives the required result if there is no cell padding active in the surrounding table …

Thank you,
Regards,

Hi Rainer,

  1. Select the cells you want to format.
  2. Open Table Properties.
  3. Select the Selected Cells tab.

Thank you, Tim, but I still don't see it.

I can set or remove borders for selected cells within a table, but only in the standard border style defined for the table.

I have a table with 1 px blue cell borders. How can I apply a 3 px red border to an individual cell within that table?

Thank you for your patience,
Regards,

Ah, that's not supported at the moment. Sorry about that... :?
