Merge table cells in Contribute - On Premises 6.4


Contribute merges cells in a table relative to the position of the cursor (or the active cell), with columns merged to the right of the cursor, and rows merged below the cursor. To ensure that the correct cells are merged, the cursor should always be in the top left cell of the group of cells that you are merging.
