Word 2007 and later: Table Tools tabsDecember 30, 2011
In a comment on one of my posts about showing table grid lines, Bill asked for more information on how to get Table Tools to display in Word 2007 and Word 2010.
- Click inside any table. Table Tools shows above the ribbon.
- Once Table Tools is showing, there are two tabs just for tables — Design and Layout.
In the screen shot above, the cursor (1) is in the caption, NOT in the table, so Table Tools is not showing above the ribbon (2).
In the screen shot below, the cursor (1) is in the table, so Table Tools is showing above the ribbon (2), and the Design and Layout tabs (3) for tables are also displayed.
