Default Can you make rows with rounded edges?

Hi all, thanks in advance for your help, I am not so good with MS word when it comes to design/layout stuff. I am updating my resume and want to make what I guess you would call the "rows" to have rounded edges.



I attached the resume here. I am talking about the beige colored row/headers. I want them to have rounded edges. This at all possible?

Many thanks,

Jordan

Hi Jordan,

Although there isn't a built-in option of doing this in MS Word, you could "fudge it" and get the same affect by inserting the Shape called "Rectangle - Rounded Corners", apply the fill colour you prefer, set any borders, then right mouse click the shape and click Add Text. Type in the heading or text you want displayed. Set the shape size to approximately the same as the table cells, then position the shapes at the position within your CV that you want them displayed.

For the table cells you have already used a Fill Color on, change these to No Fill and layer the rectangles over those cell areas.

Let me know how you go.
