Large tables are often hard to read so many creators place rows in alternate colours. In Google Docs, this requires the user to highlight each row and change the table properties.
The Google Docs Add-On Table Formatter, allows users to format tables with colours both as borders and cell backgrounds in a couple clicks.
First, go ahead and add-on Table Formatter and open the add-on. Once it has opened, you have tons of colour options to choose from – just click on the colour that you want.
