Here are ways to add a table:
Click Table in the toolbar.
Choose Insert > Table.
To create a new table based on one cell or several adjacent cells in an existing table,
select the cell or cells and then drag the selection to an empty location on the page.
Values in the original table’s cells are retained.
See “Selecting Tables and Their Components” on page 182 to learn about cell selection
To draw a table on the page, hold down the Option key and click Table in the toolbar.
Release the Option key and move the pointer over the page until it becomes a
crosshair. Drag to create a table of the size you want.
As you drag, the number of rows and columns increases or decreases with the size of
the table. To size the table from the center, press the Option key while dragging.
