Google Docs provides you with the ability to add tables to your documents so that you can present your data in a clear manner.
When you create a new table in Google Docs it is going to have lines that separate all of the individual cells in the table. This is meant to keep the data in distinct units so that it doesn’t run together.
But your table needs might be better met if there were no lines separating the cells, which can lead you to want a table without borders.
Our guide below is going to show you how to remove table borders in Google Docs.
