Splitting cells into several rows or columns is convenient to use when creating complex tables (for example, in design documentation).

The following limitations are currently in place: simultaneous splitting of multiple cells.

If you select a cell that consists of merged columns/rows for division, the number of columns/rows into which it is divided must be the divisor of the number of merged columns/rows. For example, if a cell consists of 8 merged columns, it can be divided into 1, 2, 4, or 8 columns. If a cell consists of 6 merged rows, it can be divided into 1, 2, 3, or 6 rows.

To split a cell, do the following:

1.Select the cell.

2.Execute the Split сells command in one of the following ways:

In the Command menu, select Table > Split cells.

On the Toolbar, click unmerge_cells Split cells.

Right-click the selected area and choose Split Cells from the context menu.

Press Alt+Shift+M (option Option+shift Shift+M) to split cells.

When splitting cells, the merged cell will be divided into the same number of cells as it contained before the merger. The data from the merged cell will be displayed in the upper left cell of the restored range, the other cells will be empty.

You can split any cells and not only the previously merged cells.
