Word: How to highlight table cells in text documents
You can create tables in the word processor via “Insert -> Table”. Now mark the desired cell by placing the cursor in it. Switch to the “Table design” ribbon and click on the far right in the “Frame” section on “Frame -› Frame and shading “. Then switch to the “Shading” tab and switch to “Cell” in the drop-down menu at the bottom right. Then select a color under “Fill” on the left. Under “Pattern”, you can also use “Line type” and “Color” to draw a fine pattern on the fill color, which results in a mixed color in the effect.
In Word tables, just like in Excel, you can highlight individual cells in color. The color patterns created have the effect of a mixed color.
This is how you can quickly switch to your own Word templates
