When breaking up a table in order to comment on each section separately, I cut and pasted the sections, which worked well, but then I tried to include introductory paragraphs and these seems to be caught in the table formatting, which doesn't allow me to tab, indent, etc. How can I get the table formatting turned off for these paragraphs located before and/or after the sections of tables I split up?

Hi Debbie - need more info, what version of Word you are using for a start? If you can include more details it will help us help you. – stuffe Oct 22 '12 at 16:22
MS Word for Mac 2011. This issue only occurred in the sections where I cut and pasted from a table. It seems to have hung onto the table formatting. I don't know how to go back and end the table formatting. – debbie Oct 22 '12 at 16:31
