Selecting cells

Selecting cells

You can select a single cell, a line or block of cells, or nonadjacent cells. To select entire rows or columns, see Selecting rows or columns.

To select a single cell, do one of the following:

  • Click in the cell, then select the <td> tag in the tag selector at the lower-left corner of the Document window.
  • Control-click (Windows) or Command-click (Macintosh) in the cell.
  • Click in the cell, then select Edit > Select All.

To select a line or a rectangular block of cells, do one of the following:

  • Drag from a cell to another cell.
  • Click in one cell, Control-click (Windows) or Command-click (Macintosh) in the same cell to select it, then Shift-click another cell.

    All of the cells within the linear or rectangular region defined by the two cells are selected.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

To select nonadjacent cells:

  • Control-click (Windows) or Command-click (Macintosh) the cells, rows, or columns you want to select.

    If each cell, row, or column you Control-click or Command-click isn’t already selected, it’s added to the selection. If it is already selected, it’s removed from the selection.
