They are just standard HTML tables with standard RR CSS. But it's easier than hammering out some simple HTML.

When you add a new chapter or draft, the editor has a special button for inserting tables. It's really just a matter of clicking it and then inserting or deleting rows as you need them. Everything can be taken care of just with clicks. There's also an option for advanced settings but it's really just width, height, different color - things like these. The Royal Road CSS takes care of the formatting.

It's pretty self-explaining. If you want, you can, however, switch to the source-code editor and take care of it with good old plain HTML, should you wish.

The function you're looking for is called merge cells. You'll find it via the table button -> cells -> Merge cells. About that other question: Offline Editors will be a pain to use with RoyalRoad since it selectively wipes design notations (such as heigh and width). No dice there.

Thank you for the answer. That explains why no matter how I fought with it, my tables looked like crap.

make a chapter and schedule its release for 2099 or so...
It will be saved as a draft and not published


A question of my own: is there any way to change the border color?
The attribute used by the RR editor is no longer supported in current browsers, and the current methods require access to the style definition...

Click on the Table Properties button (bottom left when you are inserting a table), select the Advanced tab and you should see the border colour selector there.

unfortunately that function creates the old html bordercolor attribute for the table, and that attribute is no longer in use in modern browsers. Modern browsers simply ignore it.
modern HTML requires the use of CSS to set border color, and that is not accessible by the text editors.
