  1. Select the Table → Table menu. Click and drag over the grid to select the desired number of columns and rows.

    Info

    You can insert as many columns and rows as needed. Single row tables are supported.



  2. A table is inserted into the text editor. All the rows in the table are standard Table Body Rows. All the columns are the exact same width.

    Info

    When you insert a table, the default table width is 475px. The Column widths are 475px divided equally by column count. Column widths are set in pixels, not a percentage so the test driver can render the tables properly. See Modify Table Properties for changing the table width. See Click and Drag to change table and column widths or Modify Cell Properties below for changing the column widths.

    By default, all rows are set as Body rows. See Set a Header Row in a table below for details on setting header rows.

    The default setting for cell padding is 2px.



  3. Enter text in the cells and format the content using the formatting options.
  4. Use the table buttons to add and delete columns and rows, delete the table, and open the table properties window.
