To create an animated table

An animated table is a table that displays a different row, replacing the previous row, every 2 seconds. You must put the document in Read mode to see the animated table work.

Note that animated tables are not supported in a Web browser.

1. Put the document in Edit mode.

2. Click where you want the table to appear.

3. Choose Create - Table.

4. Click the animated table button (third button from left) in the "Table Type" section.

5. Specify the number of rows and columns in the "Table Size" section. You can specify the table width by clicking "Fit with margins," "Fit to window" or "Fixed width." See Table layout for more information.

6. Click OK.

Tip To test your animated table, Adding color to a table and then send it to yourself in an e-mail message, so you receive the document in Read mode.

To change the way your animated table changes rows

You can change the timing interval for when the rows in your animated table switch. You can also change how the rows in your animated table switch. For example, you may want the rows in your animated table to switch when a user clicks on the table, rather then continually every two seconds.

Note Rows in your animated table must have colors applied for effects to work.

1. Place your cursor in the animated table.

2. Choose Table - Table Properties.

3. Click the Table Rows tab (sixth tab from left).

4. To change the timing interval for the rows in your table, enter a time in milliseconds in the "Switch rows every n milliseconds" field in the "Which row to display" section.


    Note 2000 milliseconds (2 seconds) is the default. A lower millisecond number produces higher rotating speed.

5. To change how the rows in your animated table switch, select an option in the "Cycle through rows" list in the "Transition when switching rows" section.

To specify a transition effect when switching rows

You can set each row in your animated table to have a transition effect as the rows switch from one row to another. For example, you can make the second row in your animated table appear to slide in from left to right.

Note You must select one cell at a time to set a transition effect. If you select more then one cell, the effect only gets applied to the first selected cell.

1. Place your cursor in a specific row to create a transition effect.

2. Choose Table - Table Properties.

3. Click the Table Rows tab (sixth tab from left).

4. Select an effect in the Effect list in the "Transition when switching rows" section.
