If you have created text with tabs or components that would work better as a table, convert the text to a QuickSilver table using the Convert Text to Table command on the Tables menu.
Requirements for Conversion
When preparing tabular text for conversion to a table, make sure the lines of text or the components you are converting adhere to the following guidelines:
CAUTION: When you select components or text and convert it to a table, the new table replaces the selected components or text. You cannot convert the table back to its previous state.
To convert text to a table:
The selected text is converted to a table. Text at each tab stop is placed in a single table cell. Text in separate lines or in separate components is placed in individual rows. All hard returns are removed.
If you chose an existing table master and it does not have the appropriate number of columns and rows for the selected text, an error message appears in the Convert to Table dialog box. Select a different table master or click New to create a new table master.
CAUTION: Once you have converted text to a table, you cannot convert it back. To avoid problems, work with a copy of the material.
