I am trying to add only a border outline to a table in Google Docs however when trying to make all lines except the border lines another colour, this happens:

enter image description here

As you can see, white spots where the row and column lines end, also, I had to manually
CTRL+click all of them which can be a pain with a big table.

Is there any way to add a border to a table without having to all of this manually?

  • No, I want a full border around the whole table without having to select every individual row and column's line to make them black manually. – Tom Jun 13 '19 at 19:34
  • select the table


  • click the arrow/triangle and select a selection you need to highlight


  • set the border parameters


  • to avoid dots on border select insides of the table and set border width to 0pt
