How delimiters affect table layout

Additional information
comma
columns
If your selected text has only comma delimiters, the resulting table will be one row with as many columns as there are commas.
tab
columns
If your selected text has only tab delimiters, the resulting table will be one row with as many columns as there are tabs.

If both tabs and commas are present, commas are just considered part of the text. The tabs are used as the delimiters.
paragraph
rows
If your selected text has only paragraph delimiters, the resulting table will be one column with as many rows as there are paragraphs.

So if you want a multirow, multicolumn table, your selected text must contain tabs or commas, to generate columns, and paragraphs, to generate rows.
