Displaying or hiding table boundaries

A “table boundary†is a set of pale (usually gray) lines around the cells when viewed on screen in OOo. These boundaries do not print and do not appear in PDFs; their only function is to help you see where the table cells are.

To display the table the same way on the screen as on the printed page, with no boundary lines, right-click on the table and select Table Boundaries from the pop-up menu. Repeat this to have the boundaries appear again.


Turning boundaries off may not have an effect if the table has borders.


You can also turn table boundaries on and off through Tools > Options > > Appearance. On that page, you can display or hide boundaries around text, pages headers and footers, figures, and other parts of a document.
