Deleting, copying, and moving a table

Deleting a table

To delete a table:

  1. Click somewhere in the table.
  2. Select Table > Delete > Table from the main menu.

Or:

  1. Select from the end of the paragraph before the table to the start of the paragraph after the table.
  2. Press the Delete or the Backspace key.

Note: The second method also merges the paragraph after the table with the paragraph before the table, which may not be what you want.
