7 Table Editing

  All TCM table editors are very similar. With each table editor you can create and manipulate textual tables, i.e. tables in which the cells are filled with a multi-line text string. The table editors offer a lot of layout facilities and TCM has special purpose table editors that have constraints built-in for a specific modeling technique. Furthermore, the tables that are made by TCM are kept graphically consistent and TCM keeps track of the contents of the tables, which is important when you have to do a lot of updates.
