Chapter 9. Working with Tables > Creating Tables the Easy Way

Creating Tables the Easy Way

Whenever you want to create tables, you have several options. You can draw the table using the Table Draw tool, or you can insert a table with a specific size, layout, and style. Both techniques have their advantages and disadvantages:

  • Draw Table Draw Table is most useful when you want to create tables with ad hoc-sized rows and columns. If you want to create a table, but aren’t really sure how many columns and rows you want to use, or how those columns and rows should be sized or organized, you might want to use the Draw Table tool. Also, if you want to create a table that has odd-sized cells, such as a cell that spans several rows or columns, the Draw Table tool might be best.

  • Insert Table Insert Table is most useful when you want to create a table with a specific layout, and a certain number rows and columns. If you know how many rows and columns the table should have, or, if you want the table to have a specific size, alignment and spacing within and between cells, you might want to use the Insert Table tool.
