Edit Table-Cell Contents
For the most part, editing the contents of a table cell is the same as editing the contents of any other type of block. Tere are, however, a couple of things to be taken into consideration when working with tables.
In general you should avoid inserting or moving blocks before or after table cells as this will cause your document to be rendered incorrectly by many (if not all) browsers. sWord will not prohibit you from doing so, but leaves this up to your best judgement.
That said, when working with empty table cells, you may:
- add text directly to an empty table cell, double click the table cell Tag Icon to open the Text Tag editor.
- move an existing paragraph, image or other block into an empty table cell, select the block you wish to move then choose one of the Edit > Move > [...] options from the Menu Bar. Finally, click once on the table cell Tag Icon.
Once a table cell has contents, for example a paragraph block, it is advisable to insert any new contents relative to that paragraph (insert before, insert after, move before or move after the paragraph as apposed to the table cell). Doing so you will avoid accidentally putting contents between table cells.
NOTE: For those users familiar with HTML, you may think of the table cell tag icon as representing the classic TD HTML tag, and should be treated as such.
