Hi all, just trying out the trial version. I'm trying to merge some cells but the "Merge Cells" button is greyed out. Anyone know how I can get this done?

Also when is visual Editor, I'm trying to acces the cell pads but it's not showing up anywhere.

Cool program btw, will probably pick it up after I try a few other items in the editor.

What type of cells are your trying to merge?

Gamehouse, are you referring to the HTML Editor? And if so, have you already created the table celles, or are you in the process of doing so.

If the cells are in your file already, how about just deleting one?

It would also be a good idea to post the url if the page in question has been uploaded, or a screen shot if it hasn't.

<table border="1" width="800px" height="200px">
<tr><!-- Row 1 -->
<td>one</td><!-- Col 1 -->
<td>two</td><!-- Col 2 -->
<td>three</td><!-- Col 3 -->
<td>four</td><!-- Col 4 -->
<td colspan="2">five and six</td><!-- Col 5 -->

I have added a width and a height so that you can see more clearly how this works. Paste this code into a new html page just to see it in preview.

Or, you could have one like this:-

<div><table width="400" border="1" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" bgcolor="#ffffff">
<tr valign="top">
<tr valign="top">
<tr valign="top">
<td colspan="2">five and six</td>

3 horizontal rows with the bottom one merged.
