Extra white space above/below text in a table RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    One of my coworkers just gave me a document in which she had somehow managed to add extra white space above and below text in table cells.  I cannot find any way to remove this space.

    • It's not cell margins (all set to 0).
    • It's not paragraph-based line spacing.
    • It's not any kind of bordering or shading (okay, I was getting a little desperate even checking this...).

    Can anyone tell me how to delete this extra space? Or even recognize what this is, for that matter?

    Here's a pic of the table with the cell text all highlighted:

    Here's a copy of the file on SkyDrive: http://sdrv.ms/KVCvwK

    We work in .doc files in Word 2010 and 2003.

    Thank you!

  • The first cell (with rotated text) has top and bottom margins of 0.19 cm and this somehow affects the entire table (no idea why - looks like a bug). If you reduce the top and bottom margins for this cell to 0, the rest of the table will behave normally.
