How do I create a table with cells of different styles?

Use the toolbar to create table:

  • Define the layout of your presentation (with at least one slide)
  • In a slide, click in middle square (where is says Click to add text)
  • Click the Table button in the toolbar
  • Fill in the numbers of rows and columns you want your table to have
  • The table is created with a dark gray background for the header row, and the body rows alternate light gray and medium gray backgrounds.

It is also possible to create a color gradient between the rows or columns using a blend of rectangles (but this method is not recommended):

  • Draw a rectangle the size of a single table cell
  • Note the size of the rectangle in the status bar FR.FAQ Draw 007a.PNG
  • Click Edit ▸ Duplicate...or press ⇧ Shift+F3
  • To create the first row, set:
    • Number of copies to the number of columns you want
    • Placement ▸ X axis to the width you noted earlier
    • Placement ▸ Y axis to 0
    • Placement ▸ Angle to 0
    • Enlargement to 0 (default)
    • Colors should stay the same (no gradient between columns)
  • Click OK
  • Select the rectangles you just created
  • Click Edit ▸ Duplicate...or press ⇧ Shift+F3
  • To create the table body rows, set:
    • Number of copies to the number of rows you need
