I have a table at the end of the document. But I can't seem to go pass it to type in other texts below that table. Is there a shortcut / ways to do this?

It's a limitation in the Mac built-in text system. It's best to add tables in between lines you've already put into the document. To get yourself out of your current hole, I suggest that you cut the table to the clipboard, then add two returns (empty lines, which will still look like a table.) Then select that "table " and from the format menu select Format > table > Remove table.

Now you can paste your table back above those two ordinary empty lines. After that, be sure to leave the empty line after the table.
