Add extra rows or columns to a table

Tables in Author

The number of rows and columns you specify when you create a table is only a starting point. As you add content to the table, you may need to add rows or columns.

To add rows and columns to a table:

  1. Position the cursor inside the table where you want to insert a new row or column.
  2. In the Editor, click Layout > Rows & Columns (or right-click and then click Tables > Insert). Then click the appropriate Insert option:
    • Insert Above adds a new row above the cursor.
    • Insert Below adds a new row below the cursor.
    • Insert Left adds a new column to the left of the cursor.
    • Insert Right adds a new column to the right of the cursor.
