I need to merge 2 cells in a table in Word 2010.
When I select the 2 cells, the Merge Cells button on the Table Tools Layout tab becomes unavailable or "greyed out".
It doesn't work when I use the right-click method either. When I have the 2 cells selected and right-click, the menu opens but it doesn't even have the option to merge cells.
It has Delete Cells, Split Cells, and Cell Alignment - all greyed out.
Merge cells is not even on the list.
I am able to merge an entire column or row, and even the entire table. I am just not able to merge 2 individual cells (or any other amount. It only works with entire row or column selected).
Some of the other forums I have checked suggested that the toolbar needs "reactivated", but there were no directions on how to do that.
It was also suggested that something in the properties needed adjusted but didn't elaborate as to what that might be.
I got so frustrated that I trashed my whole project and started over, but it does the same thing in the new document.
I am currently using a trial version that I was given to use for school until my disc arrives in the mail. Is that command unavailable in the trial version?
Or is there a way to fix this? I have tried everything and I'm running out of time to finish my assignment.
