Using the Eraser Tool in Tables in MS Word 2007
One of the fairly cool things you can do in MS Word is draw tables. I think you will agree that this is a really cool feature.
Another really cool feature is the Eraser tool. You can erase any lines that you have created in your table until it looks exactly the way you want.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Create a table as you would any other time.
- Make sure that the insertion point is in your table.
- Display the Design tab of the Ribbon. Note that this is only displayed when your insertion point is in the table.
- Click on the Eraser tool in the Draw Borders group.
- Click and drag to select the table lines you wish to erase.
- Click on the Eraser tool once more or press the ESC key.
Please note that when you erase a line that is a common border between two cells, the cells are then merged.
