You can single space tables as long as they are still legible to your reader. You can also use a different point size or font for the table or figure than used for the narrative text, but do not use smaller than 8-point or larger than 12-point type. If a different font is used (e.g., Segoe UI or Arial), then use it for all tables.

Yes, it is still preferred for tables to be one page and not split over the course of two pages. Per APA and Walden, do not split a table unless it is too large to fit on one entire page. You should not use (table continues) unless the table is too large to fit on one page.

For more information on tables, please see the Form and Style website’s page on Tables and Figures.
