[PD] Drawing in tables?

I'm just spent several weeks teaching PD and ran into many
questions that I could not answer at all.
1) in what cases is a table drawable? I thought previously
that it depended on the resolution of the array, but
apparently not. I can sometimes draw in a table that
contains 65000, but sometimes not. Can someone explain?
2) in the arrays examples, there are some messages that can
be sent, such as sinesum and cosinesum, to fill a table.
Are there any others? I could not find any. If there aren't
any others why is that, is that from lack of need or
because of a particular difficulty in implementing such
things? I'm thinking in particular that something like the
gen routines in Csound would be invaluable.
3) I have never used the text editor in PD, and a student
asked me what it was for. Looking at it, I realised that I
don't have a clue either. It certainly does not do what I
thought it would. Anyone care to explain what can be done
