Hi, Voodoopad is great and I've used it a long time. Is there a way to edit table such that we can, for example, delete or add columns and rows to already-created tables? -Thanks

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for posting here. There is a way to edit the columns, rows, etc. of an existing table.

    You can do this by clicking inside one of the boxes of the table you want to edit, so that the text cursor is somewhere within the table. After that, go to Format > Tables just like you did when you created the table. The small Table window should come up, and you should now be able to change the amount of columns and rows.

    If you would like to edit all of the boxes at once (e.g. fonts, colours, border thickness), you can highlight them all with your cursor and then change the settings. Let me know if you need anymore help with this.

    Hi, my question is similar... I'm simply wanting to delete a single row of empty cells within my table. I seem to be able to delete the text within them, but not the row itself.. Thank you kindly

    Hi Sandii,

    There does not seem to be an option to delete a single row within the table. Removing rows will delete the last row only. I'll let the team know about this, as it would be a useful enhancement. I apologize for any trouble this may have caused you. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be glad to help out.

    I have been able to remove a single row in a table by highlighting just
    that row or rows if more than one, then choosing Edit > Delete
    Paragraph. However, it does not seem to be possible to undo that action.

    Steve,

    Thanks for pointing that out. @Sandii please see Steve's reply above - that should help you out.

    I tested it out, and have been able to undo that action. Are you consistently unable to undo that action? And are you using the keyboard command or the menu command to do so?

    It would still be useful to have a clearer way of deleting rows. I've let the team know about this and we will see if this can be addressed in a future update.
