Merge or unmerge cells in Keynote on iPad
Merging table cells combines adjacent cells into a single cell. Unmerging cells that were previously merged retains all the data in the new top-left cell.
Here are some restrictions:
You can’t merge non-adjacent cells or cells from different areas of the table — for example, cells from the body and the header.
You can’t merge columns or rows.
You can’t split a cell. If a cell has never been merged with another cell, it can’t be unmerged.
Select adjacent cells, then tap Merge.
If you can’t see the option to merge the cells, tap the selection.
These are the results of merging cells:
If only one of the cells contains content prior to merging, the merged cell retains the content and formatting of that cell.
If multiple cells contain content before merging, all the content is retained, but cells with a specific data format, such as numbers, currency or dates, are converted to text.
If a fill colour is applied to the top-left cell, the merged cell takes on that fill colour.
Tap the cell, tap it again, then tap Unmerge.
All the content from the previously merged cell is added to the first unmerged cell.
