4.2.5. Alternatives to manual table creation

Sometimes, you might already have content formatted as a table. The following alternatives for creating tables exist:

  • CSV: Tables can also be inserted from a csv file on a page: Just drag the csv file onto the page in edit mode.
  • Attachment: Complex tables can alternatively be attached to the page as an xlsx file.
  • Word file: You can save an individual page in docx format that contains a table and import the Word file. This will create a separate page. From there, you can copy and paste the table into your article. You can delete the original page if you no longer need it.
