    Hi Allison,
    When I click on a table, I can see the table handlers and resize the table in both Firefox and IE11 by dragging the handler. I can, however, only change the background colour using Firefox; no drop-down appears in IE to change the background colour. Click the cell, row, or table to select it and click the drop-down next to the Insert Table button and select Table Properties, Row Properties, or Cell Properties. In the Properties dialog, select the new background colour and click Update. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Since the recent upgrade/maintenance on SLATE, the table options appear different. I cannot resize (pull) the table across the HTML page, in order to resize it, add colour, etc. Please advise.
