How do I add tables to my designs?

Adding tables to your designs can be a useful way to organize and present data in a structured format. If you're working on a document, presentation, website, or any other design project, tables provide an organized way to display information. 

Here’s how you can add tables to your designs on PosterMyWall:

  • Open a design in the PosterMyWall editor, and select 'Layout'.

  • Click the 'Table' button and you’ll see a dialog like this:

  • You will notice a series of icons on the far-left column when you bring your cursor there, each one with a specific function, described below: 
    • Trashcan: Deletes the row. 
    • Marker: Highlights the row. You can highlight multiple rows. Highlighted rows can have different colors.
    • Down arrow: Moves the selected row one row down. 
    • Up arrow: Moves the selected row one row up. 
    • Plus: Creates a copy of the row.

Here’s an example of a table, inside the editing interface:

You can do a lot more with your table to make it look better.

Change Text Styles

Set the font and size of your text through text styles. Fonts you set here will be applied to both highlighted and non-highlighted rows. You can also outline and align the text to left, right, or center.

Change Layout Styles

Background

You can keep the background transparent or set the color and opacity. 

Use the 'Background' option in the right contextual menu to set your background type. Find this under the 'Layout Styles' options. 

Borders

Borders come in 2 styles, square and rounded. You can also choose to not add a border, though borders are absent by default.

  • Publish as embedded link
