1. Thanks for those tips! This is exactly the problem I struggled with in the last two week. Too bad the submission deadline for my documentation was last friday; but thanks to your post, I can handle this issue it in the future :)

      Hi Christophe,

      Thanks for your comment, I completely agree. However, when I mentioned Apple all I had in mind was alternate coloring of rows. This simple trick increases the readability of a tables which is ultimately what the post is about. I could have been more clear on that point.
      Thanks for the link, really cool animation…


  2. I’m definitely looking for a way to colour rows not alternatively like here above, but once every nth rows (like I can do in MS Excel…), but automatically, like for even and odd row colours. Would somebody know how this is feasible?

      Coloring every even and odd row with a different color can be done as shown here. For a different pattern, you would probably have to do it manually.

      Cheers, Tom.

    Hi Tom, this is an excellent post and helped me already a lot. The only problem I am struggling with and on which I did not find a solution yet is the text alignment of the multirow cells. I don’t want the text to be aligned in the center of the multirow cells but at the top. Do you have any suggestions on that?

    Thanks and best regards,

      Hi Raphael,

      Could you just place the content in the top cell then? Would that be a problem? Please provide a minimal working example.

      Thanks, Tom
