Tip: If automatic table layout analysis has incorrectly drawn table rows and columns, editing the automatic analysis results instead of deleting all the blocks and re-drawing them manually is usually more efficient.
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 Cells or Merge Rows item in the Image>Table Cells menu.
Note: You can split previously merged cells using the Split Cells command (Image>Table Cells menu). The Merge 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 on it. Select Analyze Table Structure in the local menu. The system will then draw all the necessary separators. Should the system draw any separators incorrectly, you can edit the table manually.
