I have a large document that was originally created in word 2010, and having been editing it for some time in 2013 (on windows 8).
I recently moved a table by selecting it, cutting and then pasting it in a new position, there are two tables below the original position of the table that was moved - thus there is now a paragraph of text followed by a table that used to have another table between.
However, in the space between the paragraph and remaining table, there is a paragraph break that will not delete, and there is no paragraph break symbol at the end of the text of the paragraph. When I use the arrow keys to move the cursor of the end of the text, expecting it to go to the below paragraph break mark and then the remaining table it just disappears! If I keep moving it the ribbon bar and tab marks act as if the cursor was in a table before it eventually reappears at the stubborn paragraph mark...
there is some paragraph text here. (<word acts as if there is a table here) IP (<this wont delete) *Remaining-table-here*
I have tried running the cursor into the "hidden" table and then selecting delete table from the table tools layout tab, but nothing happens. I have tried running the cursor from one side of the hidden table to the other with the shift key pressed, to select the hidden table and so delete it but when I do this the select starts with the cursor - but then starts selecting halfway down the page below and moving back UP the page - even though I still have the right arrow key pressed down!!
How can I delete this paragraph mark and hidden table?!?
