After I reduced text font to size 7 in the cells, there is lots of white space between the cell text when I print the table. I've tried using the function that moves the text to the "top" of the cell and then reduce the row height. However, the text gets cut off when reducing the height since the text won't automatically center vertically. Is there any way to reduce cell margins? Or are there other solutions that may help?

    Are you talking about vertical space? You can reduce the inset margin to zero and center the text vertically in the cell, both using the Text inspector. You may be able to align the text at the top of the cell and reduce the row height some more but Numbers will snap the row height back to what it likes for 7pt text if you make any drag/fill changes.
