How do I create or edit a table?

You can create a table on your page quickly.

To create a table:

  1. Click the Insert tab.
  2. Click Table.
  3. In the Insert Table window, move your mouse across the squares to select a table area containing the amount of columns and rows you want your table to include.
  4. Once your selection has been made, click the table again.
    Note: You can add more rows and columns from the Table Properties once the table has been created
  5. The table is added to your page.
  6. Double-click a cell to add text to the table. You can navigate the Table using your mouse or the Tab key to move forward and Shift-Tab to move back. Click off the Table, anywhere on the stage, when you are done.

To edit the table:


Resizing

  • You can resize the Table by selecting it and dragging the handles to the desired height and width.
  • You can also adjust the Width and Height by entering the dimensions in the W and H fields immediately above the stage.
  • Double-click the Table to open for editing, right-click and select Table Properties. Here you will find Width and Height fields.
    Note: If you will be creating a print or document form of the page or course, use % values of 100 or less over other units of measure. Any value over 100% or of a different unit of measure (such as pixels) in these fields may result in a Table that does not fit the standard printed document page.
