Creating a New Table

For InDesign, a table is always an inline (anchored) object in a text frame. To create a new table, place a text insertion point in a frame and choose Insert Table from the Table menu (or press Command-Option-Shift-T/Ctrl-Alt-Shift-T). In the Insert Table dialog box, you define the initial structure of the table—the number of rows high, and columns wide, and the number of header and footer rows. When you click OK, InDesign creates a table the width of the enclosing text frame.

You can also convert text which contains tab and return characters (a tabular structure) into a table. First, turn on Show Hidden Characters in the Type menu and make sure that there are tab characters where you want columns to be formed, and return characters at the end of each line where you want a row to be defined. Then select the text, and choose Convert Text to Table from the Table menu.
