When using the ruler mode and a mouse to format a table in Microsoft
Word for Windows, The Repeat Table Formatting command is not available
on the Edit menu.
Resizing the cells with the cursor has this same effect (no repeat).
To resize the table cells, use the Cell Height and Width command
(Column Width command in Word versions 1.x-2.x) on the Table menu.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Word
listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem
and will post new information here as it becomes available.
