[Solved] Control table background stripe colors

Postby arthurpgoldberg » Thu Jun 28, 2018 9:51 pm

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.

Please update your signature to ensure you receive appropriate assistance for your version of Open Office and of Mac OS X.

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.
