    View Table Cell Boundaries when the Border is set to "None"

    I was "migrated" to a new computer and Windows 7. I am still using Word 2007.

    On my previous computer with XP, when the cell boundaries were set as "none", a ghost image of the table boundaries were present. I vaguely seem to recall that this was done through a setting in Word. If so, where is it? If not, what can I do to see these boundaries? It really makes adjusting the cells a nuisance without that little help.
    [I have been here for years; I had to get things restarted]

    Place the cursor in the table. Click on tab Table Tools / Layout. Click Show Gridlines.

    An alternative is to check the 'Show Text Boundaries' option. This is an option found under File, Option, Advanced, Show Document Content group. I use this permanently so that I can see what I'm doing whether it's table boundaries, text box or margins.
