Lesson 15

In Lesson 15, I learned how to create and apply data tables to a document, in this case a magazine. I also learned how to adjust and format the table to give it more flare.

While the video showed me basic ways no how to add a table that was created from scratch, it already had a basic table for me to place in the document and make adjustments to.

In the image below, after adding a table to the document, I began to use basic formatting tools to get rid of the strokes that separated the rows and columns and then added a purple tint, or shading, to every other row from the swatches panel.

To add the finishing touches, I added the header from the left page to the right as well, then I used the purple swatch to fill the header’s cells and changed the text to white. I applied the same formatting to the “Loans” sub-heading.
