Try Table>Table Properties. If you cut-and-paste the table from the web you may find some formatting that can't be edited inside BookCAT.

Correct. Only for the current table (you can have more than one in your notes field).

No.

Did you cut-and-paste the table? This can happen with a table that was pasted from the web. BookCAT formats the pasted table differently than it does for tables created in the editor. For some pasted tables, each data cell's border color (top, right, bottom, and left) is explicitly defined in the HTML. The editor usually displays the table properly. Unfortunately the HTML engine in the explorer does not understand this formatting and substitutes the wide borders.

Tables created in the editor will display as expected in the BookCAT explorer.

Dave

Interesting. The explorer is not accurately displaying the table HTML. The data cells have style="border-width : 0px;". Yet the result is what you want to see -- visible borders. Nice find!
