[Solved] Control table background stripe colors

Hello

How does one modify the background stripe colors in a table in OO Draw?

Also, is there a Draw manual that provides these instructions? The best manual that Google and I were able to find is https://www.openoffice.org/documentatio ... wGuide.pdf, but it is 14 years old!

Thanks
Arthur

FYI, I'm using Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3, on MacOS High Sierra.

Select the cells, Format → Area. There are a few pre-designed color sets on the Table toolbar in the Table Design dialog.

Not much has changed recently but you can look at the Version 4 release notes.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.

Thank you Mr. Programmer

"Table Design" helps address my needs. I was also hoping to make a custom table design, instead of having to apply the same color to many rows.

I've updated my version signature -- thanks for pointing that out.
