Using tables

There may be occasions when you want to display a lot of data such as a list of the points of contact (sales, accounts, etc) or maybe a product list.  Using a table you can set out the information in an easy to read format.

Place your cursor at the point you wish to place the table and select the table icontable You will then be asked for the number of columns and then the number of rows. 

If you select 3 columns by 3 you will find a table like this:





Fill the columns as appropriate:

Department    Name     Email  firstname.lastname 
Sales    John Smith    john.smith 
Accounts    Jane Jones    jane.jones

Columns are self adjusting according to the longest piece of data.  Use [shift + enter] to keep text close together if you are forcing a break, otherwise text will automatically wrap inside the box.

Department Name

Email  Firstname.Lastname

Sales John Smith john.smith
Accounts Jane Jones jane.jones
