Tables can be quickly created using the RichTextEditor icon to initiate the function:
The Table Properties box will appear, in which you will have to specify several details. The number of Rows reprents your desired number of horizontal cells, which stack vertically ( = ); the number of Columns represents your desired number of vertical fields ( ll ).
Headers will likely be most useful as the First Row, though circumstances may warrant the other options.
Alignment Left or Center, depending on the nature of the field, will likely be most desirable.
The other fields are optional and do not need to be modified.
Modifying the table post-creation is done by "right clicking" (Mac or PC) or control clicking (Mac) the table.
Table Properties will produce the aforementioned box.
