Setting Line Spacing in a Table
When you're working in a table, it can be helpful to have some additional space after paragraphs in your cells. This helps to break up the text on the page, rendering it more readable. One simple way to insert some extra space into table cells is by adjusting the line spacing for your paragraphs. First, select your table by choosing Table, Select, Table. Then select Format, Paragraph. Depending on what kind of text you're using, choose a number from the After menu. A decent amount of space for 12-point text is 6 points. This inserts 6 points of space after each paragraph in your document, and since every cell automatically ends with a paragraph, it means each row of your table will have 6 points of blank space.
