Table Designer

Many LaTEX users find it hard to typeset tabular and array environments directly. A plug-in accessory was designed to make the task easier.


Table designer provides an alternative to define a table or array. When you are finished you should press the button Send which causes the Table Designer to store the entered data in text format to Windows Clipboard and then send a DDE Macro, instructing WinEdt to insert the contents of the clipboard to the current position in its active document.

This is what is sent to WinEdt:

If you want to install the Table Designer as a plug-in for WinEdt proceed as follows:
Create a folder %B\Plugins\Array (where %B stands for WinEdt's directory, f.i. C:\Program Files\WinEdt), download the file and unpack its contents into the newly created folder.

Start the command Macros | Execute Macro... and choose Array.edt (this macro appends a menu item associated with the table designer to WinEdt's Tools Menu). You can optionally move this item through WinEdt's Menu Setup Dialog (Cut and Paste) and/ or associate it with a shortcut, Tool Bar, etc...

The Delphi Sources are also available. If you have a Delphi compiler feel free to modify and re-compile the program to accommodate any additional functionality that you might be missing in the original contribution.

Table designer was contributed by Pedro Luis Luque.

noteIf you are looking for a more sophisticated table designer, have a look at Tablas, which is the successor of this plug-in by the same author. It can import existing tables (even from Excel), and export tabulars, arrays or pstricks networks or trees.
