Table can store data with multiple rows and columns.  To change the data of table, just double click the Table element.  There are two editing modes, the default one is to edit data grid by grid.  In this editing mode, you can insert/append/remove row or column, specify the text alignment for certain table cell, or adjust the row height or column width by dragging the header border.


If you click the free_edit_button button on left top corner, you will enter the free editing mode, which allows you to edit the data for the entire table.  In this mode, each row in the editing area is for one row in the table.  Data for different columns are separated with comma.  If you need to use comma in table cell content, use '\' to escape it. You can click the grid_editing_button button to switch back to the grid editing mode.


Table is a container element, and each cell of Table can serve as a container.  You can embed elements into any cell of the table.  The embedded element will be place at the left inside the cell, and you can drag to relocate it within the table cell.


An (invisible) Table element can be used as data repository.  You can use properties to get data, and use actions to set/insert/append/delete data.
