I have a long table running over several pages. The table has 4 columns in it and mutitple rows. The borders are all invisible. There are a couple of rows I want to put a black border on. This seems a little silly--but I am having trouble with what should be a very straightforward thing. I want the border to be around the whole row but not split up the individual cells in the row. (There are 4 cells in each row created by the columns.) I hi-lite the row and right click. I choose "cell options" from the menu and then "strokes and fills". I pick .75 and black for the color. Then using the mouse I click on all 4 sides of the cell that is shown but not on the divider in the middle. All the same, when I exit the dialogue box the dividers between the cells are always showing black. This seems a little silly-I am sure there is something basic that I am missing here but I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. (Merging the cells to produce one long cell is not an option I need them to stay separate.)
Any advice would be appreciated.
… Then using the mouse I click on all 4 sides of the cell that is shown but not on the divider in the middle. …
Just do it the other way around. Click ONLY the divider.
Reason is that in this menu all cell sides are preselected. To click one side or divider means to deselect it.
I find it easiest to do this in in the control panel using the cell proxy for the selection and unselecting the two srokes in the center.
Oh! I see! Thanks!
