Add and format tables

Main content start

Tables are a great option to provide a structured way of showing large amounts of information and they make organizing information in a clean and readable way very easy. Tables should only be used for tabular data, not for layout or positioning items like images next to text.

Components of a useful table contain the following:

  • Title
  • Label
  • Information/Data

Creating a table

  1. In the Text Area, click the table icon:

    add table
  3. It is also best practice to include a table header row or column or both.
  4. Delete the width and height (Drupal will fill the max-width based on the display device).
  5. Click OK.

Editing a table

Right-click an existing table to edit the table properties. Here you can edit cells and the number of rows and columns.
