What is the methodology/extension that allows to create text tables? I can of course draw the table and then place text in it, but looking for something easier than 3d modeling a table.
You could make the table in a spreadsheet or word processor and make a screen shot that you could import into SketchUp as an image.
Better would to use LayOut and put the table in there.
2D Rich Text tool from the RpTools tool suite is another option if you want to purchase an extension. It creates a face me image from an editable RTF editor.
