Why are Microsoft Word table defaults so poorly chosen?

  • Rows break across pages
  • If your design has a header, it doesn’t repeat on each page
  • Headers get detached from the first data row if there is too much content above

I’ve spent so many hours over the years fixing tables.

  1. @AlanGMarz Yeah, that too. Nobody ever pasted a table into a document and said “I’d really love half of the data to be missing from the page.” It should allow you to do it, but it shouldn’t be the default.
