The display of tables (and everything else) on the front-end is controlled by your theme. The old attributes: cellpadding, cellspacing, border, etc. are overridden with the theme’s CSS.
Best thing to do is to tweak the styles for tables in your theme. You’ll need to maintain the tweaks after theme updates. Or you can try making a “child theme” so you won’t need to maintain the “parent”.
Actually you can accomplish this without digging in to your theme’s stylesheet.
Highlight the table cells you want set padding, spacing, and border for.
Click on the Table Cell Properties button
Click on the Advanced tab
Use the color pickers to set border color and background color. When you do you will see that the ‘Style’ field is being filled in with the corresponding CSS. TO set padding, just append “padding:3px” to the Style field value.
