Move, resize, and lock a table

When you click a table, controls appear around it so you can select, move, resize, and lock it.

Select a table

  • Click anywhere in the table, then click Table handle in the top-left corner of the table.

Three selection handles (the white squares) appear on the edge of the table when it’s selected.

Resize a table

Resizing a table makes the table larger or smaller; it doesn’t change the number of rows and columns it contains.

  • Select the table, then drag any of the selection handles (the white squares) on the edge of the table to make the table larger or smaller.

    To resize the rows and columns simultaneously, drag the dot in the corner. To resize the table proportionally, Shift-drag the white square in the corner.

Move a table

  1. Click anywhere in the table.

  2. Drag Table handle in the top-left corner to move the table to where you want it on the sheet.

Lock or unlock a table

You can lock a table so that it can’t be edited, moved, or deleted.

  • Select the table, then in the Arrange pane of the Format inspector, click Lock.

To unlock a table, click it, then click Unlock.
