INTRODUCTION

Another way to customize your slide tables is to format the borders surrounding the table cells. For example, you might add a thick border around cells containing important data. This helps to draw attention to the data.

TIP

Controlling Border Thickness

To make a border appear thicker or thinner, click the down arrow next to the Border Width button in the Tables and Borders toolbar and choose a line width for the border.
