How to use it?

  1. Using the Table menu set the desired size of the table.
  2. Enter the table data into the table:
    • select and copy (Ctrl+C) a table from the spreadsheet (e.g. Google Docs, LibreOffice Calc, webpage) and paste it into our editor -- click a cell and press Ctrl+V
    • or just double click any cell to start editing it's contents -- Tab and Arrow keys can be used to navigate table cells
  3. Adjust text alignment and table borders using the options from the menu and using the toolbar buttons -- formatting is applied to all the selected cells.
  4. Click "Generate" button to see the generated table -- select it and copy to your document.

Plain text tables are rarely needed, but if you need one, it can be painful to generate without a tool which will handle proper alignment, insert cells separators etc. So, if you happen to need text onlytable, e.g. to put it into a text document our generator should be useful. Also the popular Markdown syntax has no special syntax for tables -- you can use html table format but the code is not necessary very readable, so if you want text-only Markdown table you can now create one easily. Just enter or copy cells contents and click Generate. Next copy the generated text to clipboard (Ctrl+V) and paste into desired place.


The generator / editor is quite flexible and allows to generate tables similar to the example shown below. As can be seen, multi-row and multi-column cells are supported.

|             |  John | Andrea | Robert |
| Swimming    |  1:30 |   2:05 |   1:15 |
| Running     | 15:30 |  14:10 |  15:45 |

Please, be careful with large tables as line wrapping will break the table i.e. cells at the end part of a row will show below the cells from the begginning which will make it difficult to read your table.
