One of the things about AutoCAD that I learned early on was to right-click on everything to see what options are available to me. Right-clicking reveals more information about the tools I want to use. Instead of learning to recognize a picture on a button, I can quickly see the name of the command I want.
Here are a few right-click tips that I would like to share.
NOTE: One thing I want to emphasize about these tips is that you have to first left-click inside a cell before right-clicking.
Click once inside a cell, right-click and select Insert –> Formula –> [select: Sum, Average, Count, Cell, or Equation]
A formula is actually a FIELD. You could get the same thing if you right-click and select Insert –> Field…
You can easily edit a formula by clicking once inside a cell that contains a formula, right-clicking and selecting Insert –> Edit Field…
Click once inside one cell, hold down SHIFT and click inside another cell. Right-click and select Merge –> [select: All, By Row, or By Column]
To unmerge a cell, simply click inside a merged cell, right-click and select Unmerge.
There is a lot more you can do with tables by right-clicking. Experiment with it.
Of course, if you are a toolbar junkie, you can do all of this within the Table toolbar. When you click inside a table cell (not on the cell border) the Table toolbar will appear.
This toolbar is very powerful, but I am not a big fan of toolbars. I like right-clicking better.
