Well hidden feature here, which you may not came across unless you chanced upon it. If you have inserted a table in PowerPoint 2007, then gave it a border, you will realize that there’s no direct way to change the border color of your preference as compared to previous versions of PowerPoint. It can be done though. Here’s what you should do:
- Double click on the table to bring up the Table Tools > Design tab.
- Under ‘Table Styles’, set the table to ‘No Borders’.
- Now, under ‘Draw Borders’, set it to a different ‘Pen Color’.
- Set the table to ‘All Borders’ again.
To give each cell different colors, you can also select ‘Pen Color’ of your preference. Next, hover over the table border, click and hold. Ensure that the border is highlighted, then drag it to apply the color to the rest of the cells. If it doesn’t work, increase the zoom level and try again.
