A Blank Line Above

A Blank Line Above

Ever have a table at the very top of the first page in one of your MS Word documents and then decide you need text above it?

What did you do?

Did you try to click above the table, only to find that you selected an entire column?

Frustrating, wasn’t it?

You click and click, but a blank line above the table just never shows up. You may have even considered cutting and pasting into another location. You know, just to get the text inserted at the top of your document.

But that seems like an awful lot of work when you could do it with a one click, single keystroke.

The next time you need a line above a table, you should do this:

1.) Click into the upper left cell of the table. (If the cell already has something in it, be sure to put the cursor before the text).

2.) Then just hit the Enter key.

Yep, that’s right. Just two quick steps and you’ve got a blank line above the table, without having to dissect your document too much!
