Angry Can't delete large white space at the top of my table!

Hi,





I downloaded a brochure template and am trying to edit it to my specifications, but it's in a table and there is a large space at the top of the table that I can't get rid of. I have been using since it was Works, and have never had to post in a Word help forum before, so I tried all of the normal things: margins, headers, deleting the header, deleting rows, paragraph spacing, and nothing is working. How can I get rid of that?


Thanks in advance, and the file is attached!

If you have elected this file as your cilice, you have chosen wisely. That could be the world's most unusable template.

I would HIGHLY recommend you consider other applications for bi-fold brochures. It can be done with Word but it can't be done easily. You probably have MS Publisher on your machine and that is a better fit for the task you are attempting.

The space at the top of the table is coming from the table style applied. You can remove that space most easily by changing to a different table style. When you click in the table, the Table Tools > Design tab appears. On that, choose a table style that appears without borders (I choose Plain Table 4 - you can see the table style name by hovering the mouse over the button)

Thumbs up Ha! You are very right. :)

I didn't even need a template--not sure why I did this to myself. Publisher is right. Thanks for your help!
