Changing table properties
will move to the position of the destination column, which will scoot to the right. To move
one or more selected columns to the right of the rightmost column, drop the selection at what
appears to be outside the right edge of the table. As shown in Figure 9.11, when you have
nonprinting characters displayed, cell markers also appear to the right of the table’s right
boundary. When moving columns to the right side of the table, drop them on those exterior markers.
FIGURE 9.11
Drag to the right of the cell markers outside the table to move a column there.
To copy one or more columns, hold the Ctrl key as you drop. The selection will be inserted
at the drop point, using the same location rules that apply when you’re moving columns.
When moving a column between tables, it’s probably easier to use the Cut and Paste
commands in the Clipboard group of the Home tab (or use Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V).
Moving and copying rows
You can move and copy rows in the same way as columns, except with respect to the last row.
The last row does not have exterior cell markers. If you drop a selection of one or more rows
onto the last row of a table, the selection will be placed above the last row. If you drop it after
the last row, the selection will be appended to the table, but the formatting will often change.
Instead, when you want to move rows after the last current row, drop them on the last row.
Then put the insertion point anywhere in the last row and press Alt+Shift+Up Arrow to
move the stubborn last row up to where you want it.
Any time you want to move table rows around, Alt+Shift+Up Arrow and Alt+Shift+Down Arrow can be used to push the
current row up or down in the table. If you’re moving a single row you don’t need to select anything. If you’re moving
multiple contiguous rows, select them i rst.
Changing table properties
If you need to set precise table settings, click Properties in the Table group of the Table
Tools
Layout contextual tab, or right-click a table and choose Table Properties to display
the dialog box shown in Figure 9.12. Use the Table tab to control overall layout and
behavior; use the other tabs or the mouse to control row, column, and cell characteristics.
