Default how adjust cell width manually when table extends beyond paper margins?

As above - how am I able to adjust each cell's width so that I can see the borders of my table again? (short of using workarounds such as changing the page layout to landscape)






thanks!

Default

Go to Table Tools>Layout>Properties>Preferred Width and set it to 100% or, if you don't want to change the table's width, switch to Draft View.
