You can convert text into a table using the Command menu or the Toolbar.

When placing text in a table, each paragraph is placed in a separate cell. The table is filled with paragraphs from left to right, from top to bottom.

If the conversion is done using the Command menu, a newly created table contains three columns by default. The number of table rows is determined automatically depending on the number of paragraphs in the text.

To convert text into a table using the Command menu, proceed with the following:

1.Use the paragraph sign to separate each text fragment that you want to insert into a separate cell.

2.Select the entire text that you want to insert into a table.

3.In the Command menu, select Insert > Table.

If you convert text to a table using the Toolbar, you can specify the number of table columns manually. The number of table rows is determined automatically depending on the number of paragraphs in the text, regardless of the number of rows the user selected.

To convert text into a table using the Toolbar, follow these steps:

1.Use the paragraph sign to separate each text fragment that you want to insert into a separate cell.

2.Select the entire text that you want to insert into a table.

3.Open the pane where you can set the table parameters in one of the following ways:

On the Toolbar, select the Insert section and click t_insert_table Table.

On the Toolbar, select the Insert section and click t_more. In the insert pane that appears, place the cursor to t_insert_table_small Table.

4.Select the number of columns you want the table to contain and click with the mouse.
