Default Nudge Cell Border?

I use ALT-left mouse to override the grid when adjusting (moving) cell
borders. Is there a way to SELECT a cell border and NUDGE it, instead of
having to use ALT-left mouse?

Default Nudge Cell Border?

Hi NuclearImaging,

Yes, you can position the cursor over the border, so that the cursor assumes a || shape then hold down the left mouse key and drag
the border. This affects the whole column. For a single cell, highlight the whole cell before doing the action. You can also adjust
column./cell widths via Table|Table Properties (Word 97-2003).

Thanks macropod,

To avoid snap-to-grid-like behavior while doing as you have suggested, I
hold down the ALT key while using the left mouse key. Is there a way to
SELECT the border, release the left mouse key, and use the keyboard arrow
keys to NUDGE the border?
