How do I create/insert a table? I have a large amount of text I need format and keep aligned.

I did this: http://www.indyfolkseries.org/Previou...

but it was very time consuming. I have additional data to insert in another area and would like to be able to do it more quickly.

Hi indyfolkseries

Unfortunately, there's no way to create a table and keep text aligned in Sitebuilder -- you'll have to manually add the text boxes the way you have already done. We do have an alignment button in the Properties Editor, when you select multiple elements so you can align them a little easier.

Hope that helps!

no, sadly, it doesn't help. So if I want to add more text at the top do I need to manually move each text box down the page?

Can you guys please just add an insert table option? Kind of silly that I'm able to do SOOOO many other things, and not this.

Build your table in Word, Publisher or Excel, from File>View as Web Page. This will open an internet page. Right click on this page and click View Page Source. This also open in a new window. At Edit>Select All>Copy.

In the Homestead page you want your table to live, insert HTML then paste. Works great!

Here is my page built in Word: http://www.mcclureranch.com/ForSale.html

Thank you for this information. Took me a little bit to get it to work .... but it works for me. I use tables "all" the time in publications. I wish they would create a table feature in Sitebuilder
