    How Do I Get Rid of This Dotted Border Around a Table in Word 2016?


    Hi All. I've tried all of the border/shading tweaks, table tweaks, playing with some advanced options, etc., but the dreaded dotted border persists. Easiest thing to do is show you an image of what I mean. This is a resume, and I don't want anyone opening up to find the ugly dotted border around the header information. Please see attached.

    Note that it does print without a border, and I convert it to a PDF without the border appearing??

    I appreciate any help. Again this is Microsoft Word 2016 on Windows 10 64-bit.

    Hi:

    Those are "gridlines". They are there (e.g. in document templates) to assist with creating the document.
    You can toggle them off or on from "View Gridlines" tab under "Table Tools" in the ribbon.
    (Unless you configure Word to do so, they will not normally appear when you print the document.)

    See the attached screen shots for illustrations.

    Let us know if this resolves your issue.

    Cheers,
    MM
