Resizing a Table
You can make a table larger or smaller by dragging one of its selection handles or
by using the Metrics inspector. You can also change the size of a table by resizing its
columns and rows.
Before resizing a table, select it by clicking its name in the Sheets pane or using one of
the other techniques in “Selecting a Table” on page 55.
Here are ways to resize a selected table:
Drag one of the square selection handles that appear when a table is selected.
To maintain a table’s proportions, hold down the Shift key as you drag.
To resize from the table’s center, hold down the Option key as you drag.
To resize a table in one direction, drag a side handle instead of a corner handle.
To resize by specifying exact dimensions, select a table or table cell, click Inspector in
the toolbar, and then click the Metrics inspector button. Using the Metrics inspector,
you can specify a new width and height, and you can change the table’s distance from
the margins by using the Position fields.
To resize by adjusting the dimensions of rows and columns, see “
Resizing Table Rows
and Columns” on page 65.
