Changing Lines, Fills, and Borders

Although the layout and content of your table are most important, with WordPerfect you can also make your tables pleasingly attractive. It's easy to change the lines around table cells so that you can highlight important cells. You can also quickly switch to a different border to make the table more attractive. Finally, a fill can be added to emphasize important information.
