In the attached screenshot, you can see that there are many cells that are simply just too large for no reason, and I am unable to resize them. They appear to have some hidden formatting marks and I'm assuming that these marks have something to do with my problem.

As an example, the line that says "OWNER AND MAILING ADDRESS" looks like it contains two lines when in reality there is only one line. So if I only have enough text in that cell to span one line, there is still space below it and I want to get rid of the extra space. Is this possible? I wasn't sure if it had to do with these formatting marks or with style formatting or what.

Also, please note that this is not my Word file. I do not encounter these problems when I am making my own document.

enter image description here

  • "OWNER AND MAILING ADDRESS" - it's actually 6 cells, it seems to be one as borders are white, but small round / square icon at the end of cells indicates that that's the end of the cell. Also there are some extra space below the texts, it may come from paragraph settings (space below) or table properties (table / cell options - cell margins) – Máté Juhász Oct 11 '16 at 14:35
  • Ohhhhhh. Yeah it appear you are correct. Not sure why they (it's a government form) would set it up this way, but it's good to know the solution. – Ryan_C Oct 11 '16 at 15:32
  • I suppose they intended it to be filled by handwriting after printing, so real structure is less important. – Máté Juhász Oct 11 '16 at 18:01
