Here is what I think about using tables:
1. Use a table but don't draw a line to separate some words.
2. As far as possible, use a simple table. Complex tables may not work all the time. Beautiful borders may not work.
I have used different versions of LibreOffice Writer. I could not be sure if a shape I drew would be displayed in exactly the same way.
To me, it is not the best practice to draw a line among words to separate them.
The best practice is to draw a table.
Shapes may move to different positions when you open the file in another version of LibreOffice.
To play safe, use a table.
In LibreOffice, press
Table -> Insert -> Table
This is also an issue in Microsoft Office Word. The same shape may not be in the same place. In Word, press
Insert -> Table
It is more likely that people using future versions of the word processing software can view the same table.
