|- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh versions 4.0, 5.0, 5.1|
In Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, choosing Cut from the Edit menu (or pressing COMMAND+X) while a table or portion of a table is selected affects only the text within the selected cells, not the cells themselves.
To delete cells from a table, use the following steps:
- Select the cells. From the Format menu (Edit menu in Word 4.0), choose Table Layout (Table in Word 4.0).
- Click the appropriate options, then press the Delete button in the dialog box.
There is one exception to this procedure. If you select the last row(s) of a table and at least the first character of the next paragraph (not part of the table), choosing Cut deletes everything selected, including the table row(s).
