merging cells in a table
I am trying to create a 9x12 horizontal postcard with 4 vertical columns and 5 horizontal rows. Then I merge cells to create different size ad boxes. By the time I get to the last merge, it pulls everything up and looks like it is adding another row at the bottom. For example: merge the whole bottom row into one ad box; merge the right column 4 boxes into one ad box; merge the left 3 boxes beginning from the top into one ad box; merge the center 6 boxes into one large ad box. So, there should be a total of 7 ad boxes. InDesign is making it into 8 ad boxes with the additional one at the bottom. How do I avoid this? I have tried it with a different merge pattern and it continues to do the same thing.
Thanks for reporting this issue.
How do applications like MS Word or Apple Pages behave in the same scenario?
