Use of Tables in Storyline 2
I know there's been much discussion on the lack of support Storyline has with table creation. It's a feature I think would be a real nice addition to Storyline. I already submitted my request. I think features get implemented by popularity or demand.
There are a number of alternatives to inserting creating and inserting formatted tabular data. One option I found was using a table generation tool, such as http://www.tablesgenerator.com, includes inline CSS styling. Literally no html or CSS knowledge required. You don't need Dreamweaver or any other html editor.
Once you create your table and enter the data, tablesgenerator.com will generate the source code for you. Just copy and paste the source into an html document and insert it into Storyline as a web object.
There are also other types of tables available on tablesgenerator.com if you're not a fan of web objects.
I have no affiliation with http://www.tablesgenerator.com, just like free tools.
