When you need to display information in a tabular format, insert a table to organize the information into rows and columns.
- Open your topic in the Editor. Position the cursor where you want a table inserted.
Note: When outputting to a Word document, the left margin of the table will match the paragraph directly above the table. Choose a paragraph style with the left margin setting that you want for your table.
- To display the Insert Table selector, click Edit > Tables > Table.
- To set the number of rows and columns, drag your cursor over the selector, and then click to insert the table.
Author inserts a table with the selected number of rows and columns. Additional rows or columns can be added later.
Author supports one level of table nesting, so you can create a table within a cell of another table.
