LaTeX-pie clipbook: Reference Guide

## 26. tabular

This clip can be used in two ways.

1. If there is no selected text, then a dialog box appears, in which you can define the number of rows and columns in the table, and a template is inserted in the current position in the document.

1. The most efficient use of the "tabular" clip is the following. Selecting the following two rows as a block
          Igor Podlubny 	10
Lubomir Dorcak 	20


and running the "tabular" clip instantly gives the result shown below:

%
\begin{tabular}{ll}
Igor Podlubny	   & 10 \\
Lubomir Dorcak   & 20 \\
\end{tabular}


Note that you have to use two or more spaces or tabs for separating columns in your pre-fabricated text; single space is not treated as a column separator. If the table cell must be left empty, use the tilde ("~"), as in the following example, or any other symbol which does not produce printed output in TeX:

          Igor Podlubny		10
Lubomir Dorcak        ~
