I have gone through all my back issues to find some basic help with Pages and the internet is no help. Just how do you force a long table to split between pages when using this app?
I teach Spanish and use basic tables to lay out various dialogues, but I can’t find a way force a page break halfway through a long table. You have shown us how to handle images and so on, but something as basic as this seems to be lacking. Apple, whilst intuitive and very good, seems sometimes to miss the boat a bit. I never had this problem with Windows and I really do not want to go back to Microsoft. Can you help? David Simpson
Seth Singh says This capability appears to be present in the latest version of Pages (5.5.3). When a row becomes too tall to fit onto a page, the app will move that row to the next page, potentially leaving you with a large gap at the bottom of the one from which it was bumped down. (One way to prevent that is to manually split the long contents of a cell into two rows, though the success of that will depend any automatic formatting you’ve set for the table.)
If you find that a table doesn’t behave this way, and becomes cropped at the end of a page, select the table and then open the Format inspector. Click Arrange and set
Object Placement to Move with Text, and choose Inline with Text for the Text Wrap option. Your table should now automatically split over as many pages as it needs to.
