The Table Section Properties window allows you to configure the sections of an E-shaped table. To display this window click the Sections... button on the Table Properties window for an E-shaped table.
An E-shaped table has 1 horizontal ('top' or 'head') section and between 2 and 25 vertical ('sprig' or 'leg') sections. Use the Configuration field to set the number of sprigs.
Uncheck the all sections left-right symmetrical box if you want to put different numbers of seats on the left and right side of any section.
