It's just about impossible to change layout and formatting once a PDF has been generated. It's much easier to recreate the PDF from scratch with the correct formatting.

You can reformat everything after the PDF is generated?

Seems to me that you need to search the iText API documentation. Or find an iText forum and ask these questions there.

Do you mean after the fact? Initially it's certainly possible to format everything in a PDF, including table contents, in any way you like.

Try This mY friend. It defines the Font type and the Size you want to use even in the Table.
Font f4 = new Font(Font.NORMAL, 13, Font.BOLD);
f4.setColor(new java.awt.Color(0, 61, 126));
Paragraph p4 = new Paragraph(firstline, f4);
p4.setAlignment(Element.TABLE);
PdfPTable table = new PdfPTable(1);
table.setWidthPercentage(100);
PdfPCell cell = new PdfPCell();
cell.setBorder(Rectangle.BOTTOM);
cell.setBorderWidthBottom(1f);
cell.setUseBorderPadding(true);
cell.setPadding(0);
cell.setBorderColor(new java.awt.Color(0, 61, 126));
cell.addElement(p4);
table.addCell(cell);

output.add(table);
