You will likely find yourself needing to add or remove rows or columns, this can be done with the right-click menu. For other tips about styling and working with tables please see our How to Edit Tables - PowerPoint tutorial on our YouTube channel or blog.

Steve Sheets, Technical Director

Steve is a designer with high expectations for a final product but he tends to obsess over process too. He likes to know the many ways to get things done, the advantages of each and their oh so scary pitfalls. Perhaps that's why he has a Mac and a PC?

"Workflows are one of the few times in life where the best way tends to be the easy way, the trick is figuring out what's 'easy' for your specific situation."
