Default Put table at top of second newspaper column after column break

I'm putting tables inside of newspaper columns. My first table doesn't
necessarily fill the first column, but I want the second table to be at the
top of the second column. When I use a column break after the first table, I
cannot find any way to get the second table to line up at the top of the
second column. There is always a line above the table, and any attempt to
delete that line simply deletes the column break. How can I put a table at
the top of the second column?

I think that the best that you can do is to select the paragraph mark ()
that is at the top of the column and then use format paragraph to remove any
space before or after the paragraph and set the line spacing to Exactly 1pt
(the minimum). You probably won't be able to tell that the table is 1pt
lower.

Another way however would be to press enter at the top of the first column
to push the text in that column down.

You could also format the paragraph mark at the top of the second column as

Use the same techniques described in
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFldsFm...ksInTables.htm. In this
case, format the entire table (every row) as "Keep with next." It will be
forced into the next column without requiring a column break.

The Show/Hide button does hide Hidden text unless "Hidden text" is
explicitly checked in the View Options. But Stefan was referring to the
separate setting under Print Options, which is less likely to be checked
(and of course would affect only printing, not display).

Hi Suzanne,

But, it does not hide hidden text if it is set to be displayed under Pizza
ButtonWord OptionsDisplay. Of course that dialog does say "Always show
these formatting marks on the screen" and if the is checked there, the
in the Paragraph chunk of the Home tab of the Ribbon does not toggle the end
of paragraph marks on and off.

Default Put table at top of second newspaper column after column break

Indeed, the button (or the Ctrl+Shift+8 shortcut) toggles the display only
of the items not explicitly checked in the options dialog box.

I wonder if Word 2007 actually adds to the confusion, since the Options
dialog box no longer separates print and display options (for example, the
options to print and display hidden text are both in the Popular category of
the dialog)...

Hi Suzanne,

If people pay any attention to the headings, then the "Printing options" are
pretty clearly separated from "Always show these formatting marks on screen"
(and they're in Display rather than Popular, though "Display" might be
misleading).

I agree about that. They could at least have called it Display/Print, but
there are so few Print Options there that I assume the rest are somewhere
else (haven't explored it thoroughly, as so far I'm just looking for the
things I need immediately).

More print options are found in the Advanced category. But, then again,

I'd say that the Advanced category contains far too many options, most of

Somewhere in these NGs, a user yesterday expressed surprise that a given
option would be considered "Advanced." I think most of us feel that way
about many of the options we regard as basic.

If people pay any attention to the headings, then the "Printing
options"
are pretty clearly separated from "Always show these formatting marks
on
screen" (and they're in Display rather than Popular, though "Display"
might be misleading).

Indeed, the button (or the Ctrl+Shift+8 shortcut) toggles the
display
only
of the items not explicitly checked in the options dialog box.

I wonder if Word 2007 actually adds to the confusion, since the
Options
dialog box no longer separates print and display options (for example,
the options to print and display hidden text are both in the Popular
category of the dialog)...

I know that is what you said. The point of my message was that the

That is exactly what I said:

The Show/Hide button does hide Hidden text unless "Hidden text"
is
explicitly checked in the View Options.

The Options setting you describe in Word 2007 is equivalent to the
one
in Tools | Options | View in previous versions.

Hi Suzanne,

But, it does not hide hidden text if it is set to be displayed
under
Pizza ButtonWord OptionsDisplay. Of course that dialog does say
"Always show these formatting marks on the screen" and if the is
checked there, the in the Paragraph chunk of the Home tab of the
Ribbon does not toggle the end of paragraph marks on and off.

Right you are. I could have sworn that in earlier versions the

button hid the display of hidden text as well.

It certainly works here. Perhaps you forgot to clear the option

I think that the best that you can do is to select the
paragraph
mark ()
that is at the top of the column and then use format
paragraph
to
remove
any space before or after the paragraph and set the line
spacing
to
Exactly 1pt (the minimum). You probably won't be able to
tell
that the
table is 1pt lower.

Another way however would be to press enter at the top of
the
first
column to push the text in that column down.

I'm putting tables inside of newspaper columns. My first

necessarily fill the first column, but I want the second

the
first
table, I
cannot find any way to get the second table to line up at
the
top of
the
second column. There is always a line above the table, and
any

Default Put table at top of second newspaper column after column break

Indeed, from that perspective, the tabs in the old Options dialog box were
more descriptive. But perhaps many people felt that the number of tabs was
too large in Word 97-2003...

Perhaps the easiest solution would be to just avoid using the word
"advanced"!

Somewhere in these NGs, a user yesterday expressed surprise that a given
option would be considered "Advanced." I think most of us feel that way
about many of the options we regard as basic.

More print options are found in the Advanced category. But, then again,
there are also more display options there...

I'd say that the Advanced category contains far too many options, most of
which are really no more "advanced" than, say, the options in the Display
category.

I agree about that. They could at least have called it Display/Print, but
there are so few Print Options there that I assume the rest are somewhere
else (haven't explored it thoroughly, as so far I'm just looking for the
things I need immediately).

Clearly, I contributed to any confusion, by writing the wrong name for
the category. :-(

But my point was that the name of the category is not very helpful (in
this particular case, at least).
