Splitting and merging cells

Splitting and merging cells

Use the Property inspector or the commands in the Modify > Table submenu to split or merge cells. For more information, see About splitting and merging table cells.

As an alternative approach to merging and splitting cells, Dreamweaver also provides tools for increasing and decreasing the number of rows or columns spanned by a cell.

To merge two or more cells in a table:

  1. Select the cells in a contiguous line and in the shape of a rectangle.

    In the following illustration, the selection is a rectangle of cells, so the cells can be merged.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

    In the following illustration, the selection is not a rectangle, so the cells can’t be merged.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Modify > Table > Merge Cells.
    • In the expanded Property inspector (Window > Properties), click the Merge Cells button.This is a picture of the feature being described.

    The contents of the individual cells are placed in the resulting merged cell. The properties of the first cell selected are applied to the merged cell.
