How to add a table in InDesign

Want to add a table to your InDesign project?

A table is a great way to break up long document, or to add a bunch of quick stats or comparisons to a flyer or book layout. Whatever your reason, adding tables in InDesign is super quick!

In the mini tutorial I will show you the basics of creating a new table and adding it to your Indesign project.

Here’s how to do it:

Creating a new table:

  1. Open your InDesign project
  2. From the top menu bar, choose Table > Create Table
  3. In the Create Table window, set your total number of rows and columns and click OK

 

Adding new rows or columns to an existing table:

  1. With your project open, highlight a row, column, or single cell of your exiting table where you want to add
  2. From the top menu bar, choose Table > Insert > Row/Column
  3. In the Insert window, set your total number of rows or columns you want to add, choose whether to add above or below your selection within the table and click OK
