How To Table In Figma

Tables are a crucial asset for effectively presenting data in a structured and concise way. However, creating tables in Figma may seem overwhelming, especially for those just starting out. Fortunately, Figma’s versatile and user-friendly interface makes this task manageable even for beginners.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps of creating a table in Figma, so you can easily incorporate this feature into your designs.

Step 1: Create a Rectangle

To start, we’ll create the cells for our table. Select the Rectangle Tool (R) from the toolbar on the left-hand side of the screen and draw a rectangle on your canvas. This will serve as the first cell of your table.

Step 2: Duplicate the Rectangle

With the rectangle selected, press Shift + Alt + Drag to create a duplicate. Repeat this process until you have the desired number of cells for your row.

Step 3: Creating Rows

To create rows, you simply need to repeat the above steps, but instead of dragging to the side, you drag downwards. Remember to keep the Shift key pressed to maintain the alignment.

Step 4: Adding Content to the Cells

To add content to your cells, select the Text Tool (T) and click inside a cell to start typing. You can customize your text using the text properties panel on the right.

Step 5: Adjusting the Table

If you need to adjust the size of your cells later on, Figma makes this easy. Simply select the cells you wish to adjust and drag the bounding box to your desired size. All selected cells will adjust proportionally.


There you have it! With these steps, you can create a basic table in Figma. While Figma doesn’t offer a specific “table” tool, you can see that its flexible features allow you to create tables with ease. Happy designing!
