LuckyWP is the best plugin for tables and we use it ourselves on our site as well as on the customers’ one.
There are many reasons:
It is faster than the other plugins (we did a lot of testing with PageSpeed and GTmetrix)
It is updated more frequently than the other plugins
It has a lot more features
Compatible with Gutenberg
Once installed, we recommend that you go into the settings and customize everything.
First you will find the General settings , where you can customize:
Minimum quantity of titles (otherwise it does not start automatically)
You can decide between decimal numbers, points or as simple as we chose
You can choose the title of the table (maybe you write index, so the reader understands better)
Finally you can decide the speed of the scroll
On the appearance screen you can select:
Size of the table (full screen, auto or a value chosen by you)
Bold for the title
You can decide the color of the background, title, text, links and links on hover
Finally you have the possibility to select automatic insertion or not, in case of yes you can choose:
Before the first title H2
After the first title H2
After the first block in general

We keep it deactivated because with Gutenberg we can select the place we want most, but if you have decided to add the table of contents in the Widget, then it would be a good idea to keep the automatic insertion function active.
How do you enter it manually?
Using the “Summary” button on the toolbar of the classic editor
