Splitting multiple cells at same time

Trying Dreamweaver for first time (newb). I am in the Design screen, selecting cells to be split into columns.

I see the "split cell" button but it seems to only be able to split one cell at a time into rows/columns. However is there a way if I select multiple cells to split them all at the same time, to save time and effort? Especially if the table is large with many cells to be split.

Thanks.

Not directly. You can't select a couple of cells and try to split them. You can select the whole table and change the amount of cols and rows. You can even do some  FIND & REPLACE complex stuff to adecaute the cells in the way you want them, but I suggest you design the tables from scratch keeping in mind how many cells you'd like, I think it's better to design a bigger table and then merge cells than it is to design a smaller table and split cells.


Best regards,

Esopo.

You can, if you aren't concerned about the sizing of the resulting cells (and you better be prepared to make a habit of tidying-up your tables manually if you're using DW).

Select any row (or column) by dragging across all the cells.

Then right-click -> Table -> Insert Rows or Columns...

It's pretty self-explanatory from there, the fun bit is getting ALL the rows/columns to the right proportions.  Feel free to drop by when you need help with that.

Gonna have a wee quibble here, just on the basis that I think my approach is of equal merit to Esopo's.  They're just different ways of achieving the same result (although mine allows the extra row/column to be added at the desired position).
