Click the 'Add Table' button and you’ll see a dialog like so:

You will notice a series of icons on the far-right column, each one with a specific function, described below: 

  • Star: It allows you to highlight a row. You can highlight multiple rows. Highlighted rows can have different colors.
  • Plus: Creates a copy of the row.
  • Trashcan: Deletes the row. 
  • Up arrow: Moves the selected row one row up. 
  • Down arrow: Moves the selected row one row down. 

 

The trash can icon allows you to remove a column, and the plus icon adds a column. 

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

And now here’s the same table in your design:

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

Change Layout Styles

You can set the color and opacity of the background (or non-highlighted region) or use two other background types. You can also set borders and change their size and look.

Backgrounds

Backgrounds come in 3 types. These are:

  • Transparent
  • Color
  • Alternate.

See the examples below:

Borders

Borders come in 2 styles, square and rounded. You can also choose to not add border, though borders are absent by default. Here’s an example of a table without a border.

Spacing

  • Horizontal Spacing changes the length of your table.
  • Vertical Spacing changes the width of your table.

Highlighted Items

Quick recap: Inside the table edit interface, clicking the star highlights the row. You can also set the color, opacity and text color for the highlighted rows.
