    I am trying to make labels using Pages on my ipad. I have a giant table (please tell me if there is a better way.....), and would like to change the color of the text in the cells of this table.....please does anyone know how to do this?

    On a side rant, does anyone know why the frick can't they give use Microsoft office for iPad?!!! If they can get a man to the moon then i don't think I'm asking to much to be able to use Word & Excel on my ipad. (Yes I realize how much of a first world problem this is). Thank you for listening :)

    you can highlight the entire row or column, the tap the paintbrush icon on the top left, then tap cells, then go to text options and change the color.

    I haven't tried this myself, but I would think it should be possible. Highlight the word you want to be in different color, then tap paintbrush and change color. Only the highlighted word should change.

    Apple can't because they don't control the software.

    Microsoft likely can but won't because access to Office in a tablet is such a nice selling point for Surface.
