Creating a Table
There are two ways to create a table.
1. Via Table > Table in the menu bar.
2. Via standard toolbar.
The Table Toolbar
Before we proceed, it's essential to know the table toolbar.
The table toolbar is a quick-access toolbar that appears around the table you're currently working on. This gives you access to the following options and settings (from left to right):
- Table properties
- Delete table
- Insert row before [currently selected row]
- Insert row after [currently selected row]
- Delete row
- Insert column before [currently selected column]
- Insert column after [currently selected column]
- Delete column
Configuring Table Properties
You can access the table properties in the menu bar via Table > Table Properties (#1) or through the standard toolbar via the table icon > Table Properties (#2) or via the table toolbar (#3) by selecting the first option.
The table properties window has two tabs: General and Advanced.
General Table Properties
The General table properties contain the settings for the table's general property.
- Width - the table's width. You can define a percentage or pixel value.
- Height - the table's height in pixels.
- Cell spacing - individual cell's spacing in pixels (space between each cell).
- Cell padding - individual cell's padding in pixels (space between cell borders and its content).
- Border width - allows you to specify the border's thickness.
- Caption - allows you to add captions to the table.
- Alignment - allows you to specify the table's alignment around the text.
Advanced Table Properties
The Advanced table properties let you add custom styling to your tables.
- Border style - lets you select border style.
- Border color - lets you define a color for your table's borders.
