When you click one of the alignment buttons (Align Left, Center, or Align Right) on the Format toolbar to format text inside a table cell, an extra line space is added to the cell, and the text loses its horizontal alignment relative to other cells within the same row. This behavior does not occur in FrontPage 98 for Windows.


The alignment buttons on the Format toolbar change paragraph formatting.


To align the text inside a table cell without inserting an extra line space and to maintain its relative position with other cells in the same row, follow these steps:

  1. On the Table menu, click Cell Properties.
  2. Under Layout, in the Horizontal Alignment list, click Left, Center, or Right.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was corrected in Microsoft FrontPage 98 for Windows.
