Easygenerator tables make it easy to organize detailed data and provide more context for learners. You can add tables to your text blocks using the Insert Table button.

Insert a table

Open up or add a new content item, click add content icon (+), and from the sidebar on the left, choose Text layout. On the content toolbar, hit Insert Table button to create a beautiful table.

Modify a table

Format text by selecting it and choosing formatting options on the content toolbar. You can select text in a particular cell, multiple cells or a whole table.

Format the table by selecting multiple cells or clicking in a cell without selecting text. The table toolbar will show up with a few formatting options.

Table formatting options

  • Table Header: Add or remove a shaded header row at the top of the table. The header will be added in your theme color. You can change the color using the table toolbar, Cell Background property.
  • Remove Table: Delete the entire table and its contents.
  • Row: Add or delete a row.
  • Column: Add or delete a column.
  • Table Style: Replace solid borders with dashed borders and/or apply background shading to alternate rows.
  • Cell: Split the current cell vertically or horizontally. Select multiple cells to merge them.
  • Cell Background: Set a background color by choosing one from the menu or adding a hex color code. Remove background color with the Clear Formatting icon. Click Back to exit without changes.
  • Vertical Align: Align text to the top, middle, or bottom of each cell.
  • Horizontal Align: Align text to the left, center, or right of each cell, or justify cell content.
  • Cell Style: Highlight the selected cell in red or make its borders more prominent.

Outside of the table toolbar options, you can:

  • Click and drag column borders to resize them.
  • Add a row to the end of the table by placing your cursor in the last cell and clicking Tab.
  • Add columns by clicking the Insert button (+) that appears when you hover over the top border between the existing columns. 
  • Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Z or click Undo () on the content toolbar to revert and return to a previous state.
