Merge Cells in Table

Post by gopinathselvamin » Mon Nov 19, 2018 3:12 pm


We have a use case to merge cells in a table in oxygen XML author-17.1, suppose assume a table of 4 rows and 5 columns and we want to merge all the cells in row-2 then currently we don't have any option for merging the cells. Just want to make sure whether my understanding about merge cells is correct and if it is so then whether this feature is planned for any future release.

Hi Gopinath,

If your DITA topic is opened in the Author visual editing mode, you could select the entire row's contents, then right click and use the Join contextual menu action.
