Removing a Blank Page after a Table in Word

By October 27, 2015 February 27th, 2016 Uncategorized

Table editing behaviour in Word is one of those features that almost works properly but still has a number of problems. One very annoying issue is that when a table is added to the bottom of a page, Word will often add an extra blank page following it. In this short article, we’ll present a two things you can try should you come across this problem.

The first solution is to try and reduce the space following the table. Start by turning on hidden symbols using the respective button in the “Paragraph” group on the “Home” tab. Once visible, select the paragraph mark that follows the table and set the font size to 1.

If that doesn’t solve the problem, try the second solution: select the paragraph mark that follows the table, navigate to the “Paragraph” group on the “Home” tab and display the “Line Spacing Options” dialog. From here, set the “before” and “after” spacing to 0 and the line spacing to “Single”. That should hopefully do the trick.
