Pages: How To Insert a Blank Cell In a Table?

In Excel you can right-click a cell, choose insert, then you get to choose whether it shifts the cells right or down. I cannot figure out how to do this in Pages. I don’t want to add a row or a column, just a single cell and shift the remaining cells in that row to the right. Thanks in advance! :)

    So you mean in a table in Pages, right?
    I’m not aware of any single command to let you insert a new cell and shift all the rest of the cells in that row or column by one. This would then put them out of sync with the other cells in the other rows or columns. That’s probably why it isn’t easy to do. For most uses, it would mess things up.

    But you certainly can do it. Just select all of the cells you want to shift. Then select the cells you want to move the, to (or just the first cell) and paste. Then you can clear or change the value in the leftover cell.

    Thanks for the reply. I messed up. I’m actually working in Numbers, not Pages. Sorry about that. There are no calculations in this sheet (just text in each cell) so moving everything in a particular row to the right by one doesn’t cause any problems. Might you have a different answer for Numbers?

    Anthony: Select, copy (or cut) and paste is one way in Numbers. You can also drag. So select that cell and those after it. Click and drag that select over by one or more.
