Create and configure tables

Once you insert a table in your text, you can use the table wizard, which makes styling and configuring the table quick and simple. The contextual menu provides you with the key table operations, whereas the wizard enables you to change the design and define each detail of tables. You can tweak the properties, colors, and styling of the whole table or of single cells.

To insert a table in the text:

  1. In the contextual toolbar, click the Create table button.
  2. With the help of the grid, choose a size for the table, for example, 4x3 table with 4 rows and 3 columns.
  3. With the help of the contextual table toolset, after placing the cursor on a cell, you can:
    • Add a row above or below
    • Add a column to the left or to the right
    • Delete the whole row
    • Delete the whole column
  4. Enter content in the cells and format with the help of the contextual formatting toolbar.
