So I notice when you insert a table in your article, 3 columns are available. How do you add another column? Everytime I try, it doesn't show up.
You can work this out for yourself, just as everyone has -- by making an effort.
I tried and it will not let me. I tried insert column or row and it does nothing.
You have a bad table. A very bad table. Perhaps the worst table in the world.This might work:Open table in edit, look for insert/delete column/rowclick to get drop down menuselect 'insert column before' (or after)or 'row up' or 'row down'Make sure you select a cell first.Click 'update'. Maybe use the slider to see the result.Works for me, just tested it.
I'll try it when I get home and let you know. Thank you.
Tables on HubPages drive me mad! For some reason, I always struggle with them. I get around it by making the table somewhere else, creating an image of it, and uploading the image.
Same here. There's a lot more control of formatting etc. if the table is created in Excel or similar. However any text data in the cells isn't readable by Google which probably isn't so good?
You can create a table in Excel (or open office equivalent), save as CSV file and import into HP tables. Works fine.You are wasting a golden SEO opportunity using an image. Google likes tables.
I try if possible to use HP tables as much as possible but formatting is pretty rudimentary, so if anything fancy has to be done like in the images below, I resort to Excel.
That's exactly what I do...I use a screen shot and although it isn't perfect, it's the best way I've found for doing this. Do wish the team would come up with an easier way to create tables, though. It would be very helpful!
Somehow, I have no sympathy, lol.
I figured out how to do it.
There you go! DIY's cousin WIOY prevails in the end!
Then, I am pleased to have wasted my time.

Can you change the column width of the columns of the table capsule? It seems there is no option for doing that. In my opinion it is a must feature for a table.
