Line Up Your Text using Tables (Insert a Table)

When you want words or images to line up, it's best to insert a table with columns and rows to make sure everything lines up prefectly. (Please do NOT use the space bar to line things up!) Here are the instructions on inserting a table.

  1. Go to the page, gallery, or image where you want to insert your table
    (For galleries or images, you may need to click on the 'Edit' icon: Edit icon)
  2. You will see our standard 'Content' text editing box. Depending on where you are, it may be called 'XYZ Content' or 'Description' or 'Extra Text', if you are working with an image or gallery.
    (Please note that 'Extra Text' may not be displayed in some layouts.)
  3. Click in the 'Content' text editing box and put your mouse cursor where you want to insert the table.
  4. Click on the 'Table' icon: Table icon (red circle below in the second row of icons)

  5. Enter the number of Rows and Columns you want (see below):
    Table Properties Dialog
    (We do recommend changing the 'Border Size' to 0 (see above) so that you don't have lines in your table. But this depends on what you want.)
  6. Click the 'Ok' button
  7. Fill in each "cell" with your content. This could be text, images, a video, etc.
  8. When you are finished, be sure to click the 'Update' button to save your changes!

If you realize you need more rows/columns, simply right-click on the your table and you will get a menu (see below) where you can select Row or Column and you will get additional options to insert (or even delete) a row/column.
