Add or delete tables in Pages for iCloud
Pages for iCloud comes with several styles of tables you can use to present information. After you add a table, you can customize it however you like.
Add a table
In word-processing documents, you can add a new table within the body text so that it moves with the text as you type, or place it as a floating object on the page so you can position it freely and it doesn’t move as you edit the text.
In page layout documents, new tables are always added to the page so you can move them freely.
Do one of the following:
Place the table within the text: Click in the text where you want the table to appear.
Place the table so it can be moved freely: Click outside the page (on the background), so that there’s no text insertion point.
Click the Table button in the toolbar, then select a table layout.
The preset table layout choices are designed to match the template you’re working in. In the thumbnail images, dark rows and columns represent header rows and columns.
If the insertion point is in the document when you click the Table button, the new table is set to Move with Text (in the Arrange section of the Format sidebar) on the right, so its position changes as you edit the text. Otherwise, the table is set to Stay on Page, so you can position the table anywhere on the page and it won’t move as you edit the text.
If the insertion point was in the document when you clicked the Table button, the table is aligned according to the alignment of the paragraph where you added it, and is set to Move with Text
Click a cell, then enter your information.
To change the appearance of the table or its cells, click Table, Cell, or Data at the top of the Format sidebar, then make your choices.
Delete a table
Click outside the table (so no table cells are selected).
Shift-click a table cell (a blue outline appears), then press Delete.
