Using Tables on your presentation slides, you can make your data or other content look organized. Audiences can easily and quickly comprehend the data. Even with all this organization built-in within the tabular structure, tables still need aesthetics. A table on your slide looks good when its rows and columns are arranged and sized in a proper manner, and the table cell content is aligned well. Look at Figure 1 where you can see a table in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows with some very bad arrangement of rows and columns.
