Modifying an existing table

  1. Go to the page where the table appears, and click the “Edit” tab
  2. Right-click in a cell or row, and select the action you wish to perform from the contextual menu:
  • To add a row, select Row > Insert Row Before or Row > Insert Row After, depending on where you wish to add the row relative to the row you right-clicked on. To delete the row you clicked on, select Row > Delete Rows.
  • The first row in the table may be a table header. If you create a row after this one, each cell will need to be changed from a Header cell to a Data cell. To do so, right-click on each, and select Cell > Cell Properties. In the dialog box, select Data from the Cell Type drop-down, then click OK.
  • To add a column, select Column > Insert Column Before or Column > Insert Column After, depending on where you wish to add the column relative to the column you right-clicked on. To delete the column, select Column > Delete Columns.
  • To horizontally merge multiple cells into one, select Cell > Merge Right. To do so vertically, select Cell > Merge Down.
  • To horizontally split a cell into multiple cells, right-click on a cell, and select Cell > Split Cell Vertically. To do so vertically, select Cell > Split Cell Horizontally.
