Adobe InDesign: How to Round the Corners of a Table

By Barb Binder, Adobe Certified Instructor on InDesign

You can’t round the corners of a table with a stroke around it in Adobe InDesign CC, so how can you achieve this look?

One answer is to put the table into a graphic frame, and round the corners of the frame. Need a few more details? Here you go:

  1. Create the table in its own text frame. Format as desired.

  2.  Draw a new frame, a bit larger than the table. Add a stroke to the frame, but don’t worry about the corners just yet.

  3. Select the frame containing the table and choose Edit > Cut.
  4. Select the new frame and choose Edit > Paste Into. (This converts the new frame to a graphic frame and it now contains the text frame, which in turn contains the table.)

  5. Using the Selection tool, double-click one of the corner handles of the unassigned frame to fit the graphic frame to text frame.

  6. With the graphic frame still selected, choose Object > Corner Options. Turn on preview and adjust the corners as desired.
