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.

You can click on  Delete Column to delete the entire column. 

 

Resizing Column/Row

1

For rows, they are responsive to the content size you have for each row.

Customizing Text Font and Color

To customize text font and colors within the table, double-click to highlight the text and you may find the rich text editor panel for you to customize the text font, style, and color. 

You will be able to customize the font type (bold, italic, underline) as well as the font family, size, and color which will also be compatible with the color scheme! 

Lastly, you'll also be able to change the alignment by either all cells or individual cells.

Note: it's not possible to change a cell's background color or the table's border color at this time.

Common Question

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

Yes, this is possible! If you have an excel spreadsheet in  XLS, XLSX, or CSV format or in Google Spreadsheet, you can copy and paste your data available into the data table!  More about Inserting Data into Table
