Chapter 7. Creating and Inserting Tables > Building a Table from Scratch

Building a Table from Scratch

If you have specific information that you need to include, you might consider designing your own table.

  1. Select Table > Draw Table.

    The Tables and Borders toolbar appears (Figure 7.9).

    Figure 7.9. Select Table > Draw Table to get the Tables and Borders toolbar, which has everything you need to format tables.

  2. Click the Draw Table button on the toolbar, and drag the outline of a table in the document (click and hold where you want one corner, drag diagonally to the other corner, and then release the mouse button) (Figure 7.10).

    Figure 7.10. Click the Draw Table button in the toolbar, and then click and drag to create a table outline.

  3. Continue to use the Draw Table tool to draw the interior cell boundaries (Figure 7.11).
