Adjusting Cell Margins in a Table
In a previous tip, we showed you a quick way to get some breathing room in your table to facilitate easy reading. But sometimes you need space not just after paragraphs, but on all sides of a table cell. This space around the text inside a table cell is called the cell margin, and increasing your cell margins is a simple process.

To adjust the cell margins in your table, choose Table, Table Properties and click the Table tab. Click Options and then adjust the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right margins much in the same way that you would the margins of a page. Keep in mind that cell margins are quite small, and the tiniest increase will result in a larger table. When you finish, click OK.
