Chapter 6. Tables > Layout View

6.2. Layout View

In Layout view, you can start creating a table-based design using either of the two drawing tools—the Layout Cell drawing tool or the Layout Table drawing tool. Both tools await on the Layout tab of the Insert bar (see Figure 6-3).

6.2.1. How to Draw a Table in Layout View

Drawing a table is as simple as dragging. Click the Layout Table tool in the Insert bar's Layout tab (see Figure 6-3). The cursor changes to a + sign when you move it over the document window. Drag diagonally to create a rectangular box—the outline of the table. When you release the mouse button, a gray box appears, complete with green borders and a tab in the upper left labeled Layout Table (see Figure 6-4).
