Context Menu Commands

This is a list of all context menu commands, many of which are available from more than one menu.


Table Commands
Edit Table Title Edit the title that will appear above this table after the conversion.
CopyTable Copy the table to the clipboard.
Delete Table Remove this table from the layout.
Table Structure Select a method for PDF2XL Enterprise to decide where to split the table into rows.
Find Table By Header When activated, PDF2XL Enterprise will attempt to use the table's header to find similar tables on each page, by finding the same header. If the table doesn't have a header, the first row will be automatically treated as a header.
Append To Table If there are other tables on the same page, this option will allow you to treat them as a single long table for the purpose of the conversion. If the page has 3 or more tables, this option will open a list of the other tables so you can select which one to append to. Once the table is appended, this option will be replaced by Do Not Append This Table, which will separate the tables. If the page has 3 or more tables, the Append To Table option will remain in place and allow you to append the current table to any other table on the page instead of the one it is currently appended to, and the Do Not Append This Table option will appear at the end of the list of tables.
