Applying Effects to a Table

You can change the look of a table by applying effects (New!), such as shadows, reflections, glow, soft edges, 3-D rotations, and transformations. Apply effects to a table by using the Table Effects gallery for quick results. From the Table Effects gallery you can apply a built-in combination of 3-D effects or individual effects to a table. To quickly see if you like the effect, point to a thumbnail in the Table Effects gallery to display a live preview (New!) of it. If you like it, you can apply it. If you no longer want to apply the effect, you can remove it. Simply, select the table, point to the effect type on the Table Effects gallery, and then select the No effect type option.
