  • select whether you want to have a frame around the table (none or solid);
  • then configure the relative width;
  • click the OK button to insert the table.
To resize a table, you need to click the necessary table border and drag it in the necessary direction.
To edit cell properties, right-click the necessary cell or select several cells and choose the Cell properties... option from the pop-up menu:
The Cell properties dialog is similar to cell properties dialog in any word processor:
