A table element is used to display information pulled from AroFlo in a table format on a layout. There are a range of pre-defined tables available for each type of layout. Once a table has been added to the layout, you can easily modify its properties to show the level of detail that you require.
For a complete list of tables and definitions, see the following help pages:
Use the search box at the top or scroll through the list to find the table you need.
Click on the table name to add it to the layout. The table element will appear at the top of your layout. Click and drag it into the correct position.
Edit table properties
The table properties allow you to modify the table format and behaviour.
Click on a table within the layout preview to activate the Properties box (see below).
You can edit any of the default settings for the selected table. Some common modifications include:
Unlocking the element to allow the table to dynamically move when the layout is previewed (prevents overlapping of text).
Adjusting the Table Width to the desired size (640px is the width of the layout page).
Removing the table border by changing the Border Style to 'None'.
Adding or removing columns as needed (see steps below).
Add or remove columns
You can easily modify the level of detail shown within a table by adding or removing columns from the table.
To add a column to the table:
In Properties, under Add Columns, use the dropdown to select the column that you would like to add to the table.
Click Add Column.
Repeat for each new column required.
(Optional) Reorder the columns by dragging them up or down in the Edit Columns list.
To remove a column from the table:
Under Edit Columns, you can see a list of the columns that exist in the layout.
Click X to remove a column.
Edit column properties
If you add or remove columns, you will need to edit the column properties to ensure each column fits nicely within the table width. You can also change the font type, colour and alignment to suit existing data elements on the layout.
In Properties, under Edit Columns, click (column icon) to access the column properties.
Edit the default column settings as required. See tips below.
In the Toolbox, click Save/Remove, then click Save.
To preview the layout, click Preview/Customise, then Preview.
100% Browser Zoom
If you have lowered your browser zoom setting on your device, it may affect your layout when viewing and printing.
Add Blank Column
Adding a blank column is useful if you want to add some spacing either at the start or ends of columns, or in between.
