About Modifying Tables
After you create a table, you can modify the size of its rows and columns, change
its appearance, merge and unmerge cells, and create table breaks.
You can click any grid line on the table to select it and then modify it by using
the Properties palette or grips.
When you change the height or width of the table, only the row or column adjacent
to the grip you have selected will change. The table will maintain its height or width.
To change the size of the table proportionally to the size of the row or column you
are editing, press Ctrl while using a column grip.
Modify a Table Cell
You can click inside a cell to select it. Grips are displayed in the middle of the
cell borders. Click inside another cell to move selection to that cell. Drag the grips on a cell to make the cell and its column or row larger
When a cell is selected, double-click to edit the cell text. You can also start entering
text when a cell is highlighted to replace its current content.
To select more than one cell, click and drag over several cells. You can also hold
down Shift and click inside another cell to select those two cells and all the cells
between them. When you click inside a table cell when the ribbon is active, the Table
ribbon contextual tab is displayed. If the ribbon is not active, the Table toolbar
is displayed. From here, you can

With a cell selected, you can also right-click and use the options on the shortcut

When cells are selected, you can use Ctrl+Y to repeat the last action.
Using Ctrl+Y to repeat the last action only repeats actions executed through the shortcut
menu, the Table ribbon contextual tab, or the Table toolbar.

a table cell is selected for editing. Use the TABLEINDICATOR system variable to turn
this display on and off.
