Realign Troublesome Tables

Sometimes a table seems stuck in its alignment. No matter how many times you select the whole table and set paragraph alignment, it won’t budge. The trick is to drag the table using its grab point:

  1. Hover over the table until the grab point pops up. That’s the 4-way arrow at the top left corner of the table.
  2. Click on the grab point and drag the table where you want it.
Hover the cursor over a table to make the grab point appear.

To make sure the table aligns with the margins, reveal the ruler by checking the box on the View ribbon.
