Inserting Table


You can allow a heading for your table and decide how many rows should repeat the title. The Border option allows you to show a border. AutoFormat is a series of formats to choose from that are already configured to save you time.

Once the table is placed into the document, you will be able to modify it with a number of tools that appear when you click inside your table. These tools will only appear after you have inserted a table. When you hold the cursor over an icon an explanation is visible for the icon. If you do not like the floating table it can be anchored by moving it up toward the other bars at the top of the screen.
