Content tables are useful for times when you want to display tabular data, such as timelines or deliverables, and not associate them with a price.
They can even be used when you want to display a summary pricing table but not have the prices included in the total that automatically gets calculated and displayed in your price and reports.
Otherwise content tables work similarly to pricing tables. To add a new content table, put your cursor in a text box and click on the "Insert table" button.
It will then ask you how many columns, rows, headers and footers you want.
After you create your table the cells will be blank, and you can click in each one to add content.
You can put your cursor between the columns and click/drag to change the size of the columns.
Hovering over a row will show you options to add/remove columns. Clicking the plus icon will add a new column to the existing table and clicking the trash icon will remove the row you are hovering over.
Editing Text in Content Tables:
While editing text within a table you'll have access to all the standard functions in the text formatting menu, like changing text styles, bold, italic, lists, hyperlinks, color, alignment, size, line height and so forth.
If your table is in a master text box (text heavy page type) it will automatically flow to the next page if it gets to the end of a page.
If you want to style the table differently from how you have the table styles set in your theme, right click on the table and select "Style Table".
A dialog will appear that matches the settings in your themes table styles.
You can change the padding, color of rows, border weight and color, choose alternating rows, and header/footer colors, padding and borders.
You can also choose default style to use in body, header and footer rows, though they can be changed at an individual level.
