Tables for my conlang

Post by Visinoid » 05 Nov 2011 00:20

I'm still working on my conlang right now and I wondered how to do some neat tables like Milyamd's.

The way I do it (as I recently learned) was to just make actual tables on some program (you can even do it on Word), take a screenshot of it, and then trim it using some image editing program.Voila.
I now have a blog. Witness the horror.

I think I think, therefore I think I am.

Yeah generally you just make the table in an office program (such as word or excel), print screen it, paste it into an image editor (even ms paint does the job), upload it to an image storing site like photobucket or imageshack, and finally you link to it in your post.

Yep, that's Microsoft Office Word 2007.

You add table by Insert > Table, write the stuff, then change the style in Table tools > Design.

Just as a quick question: did anyone else have size related trouble using Deviant Art as the host for this kind of thing?

DeviantArt is pain to use for hosting. Just use Photobucket or Dropbox.

Anyway I was out of town and I wasn't able to post this:

Fair enough, a new account it is.
