Thanks Greg for the advise. However I cannot get the lines visible. I've tried to select each cell separatelly and ticked all four boarders but after pressing F11 I can see only text that are written to each cell, no boarders. Shift + Alt doen nothing, the cursor is a cross with arrows at each end when I have the table selected.
