Inserting a Table

We have finally launched the table feature on Piktochart! Do note that this feature is still in Beta so you will most probably be seeing some limitations to the functions and features of the tool. Our current Tables works best on the Google Chrome browser, and may not work well on Firefox and Safari. 

If you have any feedback or thoughts on them, let us know what you think by reaching out to us at [email protected]

Common Question

Can I remove the first row in grey? 

The first row is the header of the table and it is not possible at this time to remove it due to the technical design of the table.

Is it possible to copy and paste from an Excel sheet or Google Spreadsheet? 

Yes, this is possible! You can learn more about Inserting Data into Table

How do I change the font and color of the table? 

Further customization of font, text color, and table colors is still not yet possible in the beta version. They are currently in our roadmap for improvement! Learn more about some of the current limitations with the table feature here.

How do I undo a step? 

To reverse a change, simply click on the Undo/Redo button on the editor and any changes that have been made will be reversed. You can also use shortcut keys; CTRL + Z for windows and Command + Z for Mac.
