How to wrap long tables in AutoCAD (LT)?

A - answer Long AutoCAD tables (tables with many rows) may be difficult to place on drawing sheets. But you can wrap any table into multiple sections (columns) in AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.

Grip-select the table and use the bottom center blue arrow (pointing down) to click and drag the wrap break-line to the desired position.

You can also do this in a less interactive way using the Properties palette. Display the Properties (Ctrl+1), select your table and set the requested properties (especially the Break height) in the last section - Table Breaks. You can e.g. control the horizontal spacing of the wrapped sections, repeat top and bottom labels, etc.
