Resize table rows and columns in Pages on Mac
You can change the width of selected columns and the height of selected rows in a table, or you can resize all rows or columns at the same time. However, you can’t change the width or height of individual table cells.
Note: The tasks below apply to a table you add to your page. They don’t apply to a page you formatted into columns.
Resize table rows or columns manually
Click the table.
Do one of the following:
Resize a row or column: Move the pointer below the row number or to the right of the column letter until you see , then drag to resize.
Resize multiple rows or columns: Select the rows or columns, then move the pointer below the bottommost row number or to the right of the rightmost column letter until you see , then drag to resize. They’re resized proportionally.
Resize all rows or columns in a table: Click in the top-left corner of the table, then drag the white square at the bottom edge of the table to resize rows; drag the square on the right edge of the table to resize columns; or drag the square in the bottom-right corner to resize both.
As you drag, yellow alignment guides may appear when a table’s rows or columns align with rows or columns in another table on the canvas.
Note: If the content of cells doesn’t fit after resizing, you can adjust rows or columns so that it does. See the task below to learn how.
Resize a table row or column precisely

Make table rows or columns the same size
To make some rows or columns the same size, select the rows or columns; to make all the rows or columns the same size, click the table, then click in its top-left corner.
Choose Format > Table > Distribute Rows Evenly or Distribute Columns Evenly (from the Format menu at the top of your screen).
