Tip: If automatic table layout analysis has resulted in table rows and columns being drawn incorrectly, try editing the automatic analysis results instead of deleting all the blocks and drawing them manually again. Almost invariably this proves less time consuming
Use the following Image toolbar tools to edit a table:
- Add a vertical separator
|- Add a horizontal separator|
- Remove a separator
|If the table cell only contains a picture, select the Treat cell as picture item in the Block Properties dialog (menu View>Properties). If the table cell contains both text and pictures, draw a separate picture block (or blocks) inside the cell.|
Select the Merge Table Cells or Merge Table Rows item in the Edit menu.
Note: You can split previously merged cells using the Split Table Cells command (Edit menu). The Merge Table Rows option does not affect the division of the table into columns.
Note: To avoid drawing horizontal and vertical separators manually, draw a separate table block, then right-click it and select the Analyze Table Structure item in the local menu. The system will then draw all the separators it considers necessary. Should the system draw any separators incorrectly, you can edit the table manually.
