Creating or Altering Table Cells

See the tutorial lesson on tables for a hands-on example.

To create a table:

Note: If the items you want to place in the table are already in your page, you should highlight them before choosing to create the table. When you create the table, the table cells will be filled with the paragraphs you selected (from left to right and then from top to bottom). Lists, forms, and other tables are not split up; the entire list, form, or table is placed in a single cell.

  1. Choosing the Table Create Table menu item while your cursor is at the point where you want to create a table, opens the Table window.
  2. Set the number of vertical columns and horizontal rows you want in your table. (It's easy to change these numbers later.)
  3. If you want the table to have a caption, type the text for in the Caption field. The caption will be centered from left to right either Above or Below the table.
  4. The fields at the bottom of the window control the borders and spacing of the table.

  5. Click OK when you are ready to create the table.
  6. If you want to change any of these settings later, just put your cursor inside the table and choosing the Table Alter Layout menu item.

Adding or Deleting Table Cells


To add rows and columns:

  1. Place your cursor in the row or column after the row or column you want to create.
  2. Choose the Table Alter Insert Row or Table Alter Insert Column menu item. An empty row or column will be added before the row or column containing your cursor,


To add rows to the bottom of your table or columns to the right edge of your table:

  1. Choose Table Alter Layout .
  2. In the Table window, increase the number of rows or columns in the table.


To delete rows and columns:

  1. Place your cursor in the row or column you want to delete.
  2. Choose the Table Alter Delete Row or Alter Delete Column menu item. The row or column containing your cursor will be deleted.
