Create a Quick Table

Tables in Author

To create the quick table examples:

  1. Create a folder in your library to store your quick table topics.
  2. In the folder, create a new topic by using any standard topic template.

    Note: Create the topic in the folder, but don't add it to a Book object.

  3. Open the topic and insert a table with the required number of columns and rows. Resize the table as required, and then apply border, cell, style, and text formatting to the table cells. You can also add standard text such as row or column headings. If needed, add any standard text before or after the table.
  4. Save the topic.

After creating quick tables, you need to tell Author which folder they are stored in.
