I'm trying to create a table with a certain number of rows/columns and formatted. How should I do that?

3 Answers 3


This was remarkably frustrating because the "Format Panel" that displays the table options doesn't pop up unless it's been previously activated:

To access the "Format Panel": create a table, click on the table, then...

  • Opt1: click the Grid icon (its directly under the draw.io icon) and select "Format Panel"
  • Opt2: CTRL+SHIFT+P
  • under Misc select a table of your choice
  • then after clicking to edit text you gain options on the right panel to insert more rows or columns


  • Double click in empty space.
  • Use the table icon (highlighted) to select the table size.

Insert table icon in the draw.io format panel
