How to add additional row/column to the existing table


How to add additional row/column to the existing table? What is the shortcut for this? 






Click on the "insert row beneath" button on the toolbar, after putting the cursor on the right line.  There's no keyboard shortcut for this though.

adding rows is easy as pie via tabbing; just enter the last row and column and hit the tab key; that will add another row at the end of the table.

- but how can I add columns?

Click on the "insert column before or after" buttons.

Thanks @Dan Vitvass , for some reason the buttons were not working, but the tab works just fine!

wow, thanks! I would not have found that function (that icon) without your help! super!

I'm including a screenshot with the tooltip to help others as well

If you hover over the buttons mentioned by Nic then they will show you the shortcuts.

Pretty simple:
Alt+Shift+(down arrow)  .... Insert row "After"

Alt+Shift+(up arrow)  .... Insert row "Before"


Alt+Shift+(right arrow)  .... Insert column "After"

Alt+Shift+(left arrow)  .... Insert column "Before"
