The cell "merge" and "split" options for editing tables in Canvas don't seem to work. Are they not available for use? Even when trying to use rowspan="2" in html view, I have no luck.
Hi Jane Gregory...
Merging and splitting cells in a table seem to work fine for me. For example, in a new page in my "sandbox" Canvas course, I created a 3 x 3 table. While still in editing mode, I selected the top two left-most cells in the table and then selected the "Merge cells" option from the "Table" tool. The two cells merged together as one. Keeping my cursor in that merged cell, I then clicked on the "Split cell" option from the "Table" tool, and my table returned to the 3 x 3 shape that I originally created.
I hope this helps, Jane.
Took me a while to find this as I was trying to merge the cells by using the pop up table options that pop up at the bottom of the table.
All you need to do
1. select / highlight the two table cells
2. click on the table icon in the editor
3. select Cell / Merge Cells
Thank you for your input! I actually discovered that the problem was my browser. Once I switched from using Firefox to Internet Explorer, the table editing features all worked fine.
