Here is an old favorite* Word Tip.
Looking for an easy method to move a table row up?
- Place cursor on the row.
- Press ALT + SHIFT + Up Arrow.
Repeat as necessary until the cursor is elevated to desired position. As you probably guessed, pressing ALT + SHIFT + Down Arrow moves the selected row down.
This trick is not just limited to tables. It also works with:
- Bulleted text
- Numbered lists
- Outline text
- Non-numbered paragraphs
- IQ points
Okay, admittedly that last one was just wishful thinking :).
* Tip applies to Word versions 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013. This tip may be relevant in earlier Word versions, but to confirm this I would have to pull out my old PC from its resting spot, on a shelf, under a pair of acid-wash jeans, wedged between an un-seeded Chia Pet and my Commodore VIC 20.
Comments and questions are always welcome!
