Create and Insert Tables in Canva: 2 Methods

Method 1

Step 1: Select the Shape of Your Cell From the Elements 

Rows and columns can be imported to the document. To do this, go to “Elements” and choose the row or column, then click “Insert”. A rectangle or square will appear.

Step 2: Resize the Dimensions of the Shapes 

So, now, resize it. I used a square, but you can easily just click and drag a rectangle to fill your cell. Remember, you can always undo and save your changes at any point.

Step 3: Copy the Shapes And Paste 

Copy and paste the sized cell. When you resize the cell, it will copy itself. If you’ve been working with many-sized cells, you’ll notice that you only see each one once. Copy and paste them as often as necessary, depending on how many columns you need.

Step 4: Copy the Rows

Once you have created your row, copy and paste it. This can be easily done by selecting the row and using the “Paste” tool. 

Then, select another row and simply “Paste” again. This will allow you to create rows as you need.
