If you have PerfectTablePlan Home edition you can create an E-shaped table (and other complex table types) by composing it from basic table shapes. Typically you will use a head table plus a banquet table for each 'sprig'. If you need to add guests at the end of the banquet tables you can use custom tables instead.

See the 'masonic_sample_Home_edition' table plan shipped with PerfectTablePlan for an example of an E-shaped table plan.

Hints:

Set the Inside and Edge colours of the tables the same in the colours_and_fonts_16Fonts and Colours window so that you won't see where the tables overlap.

Set the Seats drop-down list at the top of the Floor Plan pane to Name only banquet for a name layout that is easy to read and makes good use of space.

Turn the grid snap off.

Use the keyboard arrow keys to make small adjustments to the positions of selected tables.

Use the Shuffle Seats window to move blocks of seated guests around the table, e.g. after changing the table size.
