Learn how to make and edit tables in InDesign.
- [Instructor] Let's have a look…at creating some tables…inside of InDesign.…If I create a quick text frame,…I'm just going to drag one arbitrarily…on this layout like so,…I can go to the Table menu…and choose Insert Table.…All I then need to do…is complete this dialog,…the number of rows…that I want, the number of columns,…header rows if any and footer rows if any…and then hit OK and there you are, I've got a table.…If I just come out of that…and I'll pick up the selection tool here…and delete that,…you can also put one in without having…a text box present.…
If you go to the Table menu and choose Create Table,…you get exactly the same dialog,…you get a table as a result…which you can click and drag into place like so…and you get a text frame around it…that's really snug to the edges.…More commonly though…you're much more likely to bring it in…as part of a Word document perhaps…because if you remember the import options,…one of those was to preserve the formatting…of tables and then you could refine them…inside of InDesign…
