    White space around cell content (2007)

    Hi,

    Is there a way to have white space around cell content?

    This would improve the presentation of information. Otherwise when you paste a table from Excel into PowerPoint, it brings the edge very close to the text & affects readability.

    Cheers

    You can specify that the cell contents are centered horizontally and vertically (in the Alignment tab of Format | Cells...), and increase the row height and column width a bit.

    In the Alignment tab of the Format Cells dialog (Ctrl+1), you can specify Left (Indent) or Right (Indent) as horizontal alignment, and specify an indent (1, 2, ...) in the spinner control to the right.

    There is no equivalent setting for vertical alignment.
