How to insert a table and edit it
1. Click File > New > Text Document. 2. Click Table > Insert > Table... (or simply Ctrl+F12).

Insert Table Options
After the Insert Table window appears, we then have several options for our table.

1. You can change the name by writing in the Name section. This time we will write “Timetable”. 2. There's a Size option. There we can decide how many Columns and Rows we want. Click on the blue arrows to change the number. We will put 6 Columns and 9 Rows. 3. Finally, we've got the Options section. By clicking on the Heading option, you will get a heading for your timetable. You can also Repeat the heading. There are also the Don't split table and Border options. 4. Click OK when you're done.

Change its size
Once we've got the timetable with the columns and rows we want, we can change its size. There are two ways of doing this.

Change its size by using the arrows
1. Simply put the cursor on the border of one of the columns, rows or cages that you want to change its size. 2. An arrow will appear. This indicates that you can edit the measure of the selected line. Stretch it to obtain the measure you want or need. 3. You can edit the height of a column, row or cage by pulling it up if you want to make it smaller, and pulling it down if you want to make it bigger. 4. On the other hand, change its width by pulling it to the right or to the left.

Change its size by using the Table Format window
1. Select the whole table by placing the cursor near it. A bold black arrow will appear. When this happens, simply click. The colour of the table must change to blue. 2. Right-click on it. Something like this will appear:

3. Click on the Table option, which is indicated in the image above. 4. Click Columns and go to the Column width option. There you can individually change the size.

Edit its borders
You can easily change the size and colours of the borders by following these instructions: 1. Open the Table Format window as it was explained in the section before. 2. Click the Borders tab.

3. For changing the style of the line, go to the Style section and chose the size you prefer by clicking on the blue arrows. 4. In the Color section, we can chose the colours of the borders. There are more options, but these are the simplest ones.

Edit the background
1. Open, again, the Table Format window. 2. Click on the Background tab.

3. On the As option, chose Color if you want just a plain colour as a background. You have many colours to chose below (however, if you want an image, chose the Graphic option by clicking on the blue arrow).
