    To create tables. 

    If users need to import tables, they can use copy/paste but we don’t recommend it. It’s better to create a new one and fill results manually. Press the table button on the toolbar. The Table Properties dialog window that will open lets you set configuration options that define table size, its display properties, or other advanced properties.

    Below is an overview of all Table Properties tab elements:
    • Rows – the number of rows in the table (obligatory).
    • Columns – the number of columns in the table (obligatory).
    • Width – the width of the table in pixels or a percent value. Giving the width as a percent value lets you set the proportion of the editing area that the table will occupy.
    • Height – the height of the table in pixels.
    • Headers – the drop-down list that formats certain table cells as headers, which applies special formatting to them. You can apply header formatting to First Row, First Column or Both.
    • Border size – the thickness of the table border in pixels.
    • Alignment – the alignment of the table on the page. The following options are available: Left, Center, Right.
    • Cell spacing – the space between individual cells as well as cells and table borders, in pixels.
    • Cell padding – the space between the cell border and its contents, in pixels.
    • Caption – the label of the table that is displayed on top of it.
    • Summary – the summary of the table contents that is available for assistive devices like screen readers.

    Note: 1 pixel (px) is approximatively equal to 0.30 millimeter (mm).
