What is "Cell Spacing" and "Cell Padding"?


"Cell spacing" within a table is the space between the cells and "cell padding" is the space between the contents of the cell and all of the cell walls. If you want to change the size of the cells, "cell padding" is much more effective. However, because of the "flow" nature of html, the cell sizes may change. If the cell content inserted into a cell is larger than the cell itself, that cell may grow or "push" the adjacent cell.

To change the cell spacing or cell padding in an existing table

1) Click on the table to select it.

2) Click on the "This Table" tab.

3) Type in the desired measurements for cell spacing or cell padding (measured in pixels).

4) Click the "Apply" button.
