How do you configure columns within the Custom Excel conversion option?


Once a table has been created, you can edit the table structure using the tools in the conversion Panel. To add a column, click on the “Add Columns”� icon, and then left click where you would like to add a column within the table. To remove a column, click the “Erase Column Line”� icon and the left click on a column to erase it.

The drop down menu below the Add/Erase column icons has to do with the treatment of content (such as text or numbers) when it comes into contact or into close contact with a column line. The two most common treatment items are either "Never Split" or "Always Split". In some cases, say, where a page is slightly tilted, so a column line does hit some words or numbers, you may want to use one of the gray area options, such as "split of 2 spaces between words".

The button below the drop down menu is entitled "Column Types". This allows you to designate how the content within each column is treated for the purposes of Excel - as numbers, by default, or text. The Tables are represented within the dialogue from top to bottom, on the active page.
