Exact Row Height Generates Unexpected Shading Results in Table

PSS ID Number: Q100606 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 5.00 5.10 MACINTOSH kbusage kbprb

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 5.0 5.1


In Word, when you use the Shading feature (available when you choose Border from the Format menu) to shade a table cell or cells, the entire cell or cells may not be printed with the desired level of shading. This can occur if you set the Row Height (available when you choose Table Cells from the Format menu) to Exactly and set the size to 18 pt or smaller.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for the Macintosh versions 5.0 and 5.1. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

To produce the desired result, set the Row Height to At Least.


Using the PostScript commands to shade a cell or row will produce the expected results with any Row Height setting. For instructions on using this method, query in the Microsoft Knowledge Base on the following words:
