In additions to insert multiple rows by right click, applying Insert in Layout to get it done is also a good choice. Here also take Table A for instance.

Step 2. After clicking Insert Below, it will insert three new rows below the third row into Table A, see screenshot:

Step 3. Select two of the inserted new rows, and click Insert Below/Insert Above under Layout tab, it will insert tow new rows into Table A again. See screenshots:

Note: If the existing table rows are less than the rows you want to insert, you can repeat this operation until you insert enough rows into the table. Meanwhile, you also can use the same way to insert multiple columns. Moreover, if you want to insert row, you just need to put the cursor on one row and apply the utility without selection.
