Steps

  1. 1
    So the first thing we're going to do in order to create the table, is we need to press 'Shift', the 'Plus' sign, and 'Tab'.
    And I can make the table as big as I need if I keep pressing 'Tab' and 'Plus' to make the table.

    If I want to increase the size, create more rows, I'm going to use 'Tab' to move to the end.
    When I get to the end, I press 'Tab' again and I can create another row.

    So, here you can see I've split the cell into two boxes.
