“Brain cells create ideas. Stress kills brain cells. Stress is not a good idea.” Frederick Saunders
A question I get a lot is how does one make a banner out of a bunch of cells across the screen. There is one button that makes this so easy that it is just a two step process. First highlight or select the cells or boxes that you want to make into a single cell then go to the formatting toolbar and choose Merge and Center. It is usually near the alignment buttons. It looks like a confused lower case a. Once you click this it will collapse all the selected cells into one. This can be done vertically and diagonally as well. Also if you had text in one of the boxes it will now be centered. Be careful if you have text in multiple boxes that you wish to merge. It will tell you cannot do it. Just choose a blank set of cells or cut and paste all there data out of there. If you to rearrange your space give this one a try.
