Insert columns and rows
Insert a new column or row without changing the existing table width
Easily insert a new column or row into your PowerPoint table without impacting the existing width. Four buttons enable single click access from the ribbon to insert a column to the left or right, or to insert a row above or below.
Adding columns will not change the existing width of your table, however adding rows will increase the table height.
Combine this feature with the Autofit Columns feature if you want to optimize column widths of your table to minimize table height (based on contents)
All PPT Productivity features can be used via the customizable shortcut key feature. You can update the shortcut keys to any preferred available combination, but to get you started we have set up the following for quickly inserting columns and rows into tables:
insert a column to the left with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Left
insert column to the right with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Right
insert a row above with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Up and
insert a row below with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Down
