When editing the content of a Print article in Studio, tables are represented by an icon.
Figure: The table icon represents a table in a Print article.
Working with tables can be done by performing the following actions:

Previewing a table
Previewing the styling and content of a table is possible when the Print article is placed on a layout. When this is the case, the article can be previewed in the Preview panel by clicking the Preview icon in the toolbar.
Editing a table
Editing a table is possible by changing the text. Actions that are not supported include:
- Changing the styling of the table
- Adding or removing rows or columns
- Merging cells
- Editing a table that is part of another object such as a table or a footnote
- Manipulate the text using the Print editor text SDK

|Applying character styles||11.69 or higher||Only available when the selected text
does not span multiple paragraphs.
|Applying paragraph styles||11.68 or higher|
|Showing hidden characters||11.67 or higher|
|Working with inline notes||11.67 or higher|
|Working with footnotes||11.67 or higher|
|Applying the next paragraph style||11.66 or higher|
Step 1. Double-click the table icon.
