Creating a Table

To create a table in the SciFlow editor simply use the table button, which you can find in the format bar.

Afterward, the table creation menu opens up. Here you have the option to choose between creating a native table and uploading an image table.

Native Table

A native table is an empty grid of table cells, that can be filled and edited after your liking. The size of this grid is determined by selecting the respective number of columns and rows in the table creation menu. Columns and rows can still be added and removed after creating the table, so don't be hesitant to create a table and start working.

Editing a Native Table

Once you created a native table, you can edit that table by placing the cursor within the cell you want to work on. Once the cursor is set within a table, the format bar will expand to give you access to further table editing options.

These options contain features such as choosing an alignment and merging cells as well as deleting and adding columns and rows.

Hovering your cursor above one of the table editing options in the format bar provides further information regarding that feature.

Image Table

If you already possess a finished table as an image file, you can choose to upload it from your hard drive into your SciFlow document. You can achieve that by clicking upload an image in the table creation menu.

Our recommended file format for image tables is SVG. This file format preserves the text properties of your table. Therefore, its contents will also be displayed as a text, which makes them much easier to access. Here you can find some tips for creating an SVG.
