When you create a table in a OneNote notebook, you may want to move that table around and you may even want to move the contents of the table around. So that's what we're going to do right now with our TwoTrees6 notebook in the AGM section with the Agenda page selected. We start at this table. We're going to start with the content, where we see Day 2 and the Time, the Name and the Title. Maybe we want to move that content. We know that we can click anywhere in the table. We're going to see our Table tools on the Layout tab. So if we want to select a row for example, you might be thinking okay, I want to cut this and maybe paste it in an empty row down below.
So we leave a little space between days. That's an option but there's a faster way. You may notice when you start moving around the various rows in your table, there's this little icon that appears off to the left-hand side. That allows you to select an entire row. So for example, if we go down to the row, for Day 2, 9am, Winston Barry and click on that icon, you notice that the entire contents are selected. With our mouse still over the icon, we can click-and-drag down and watch what happens.
The contents move down to the next row. When we release, we've easily moved the data down to the next row, thus leaving an empty row between days, simple as that. Cutting and pasting is obviously going to work as well. There are just more steps involved. Now, to move the table around, well we don't actually select table. If we go to select the table, you'll notice what's really happening is all of the contents in the table are being selected. So we could do things to the contents like change the formatting, if you want a different font for example. That's great.
If we want to actually move the table, we move the note itself. So you see the border the around the note. It doesn't matter if the contents are selected or not. We can move this table wherever we want, and then just click outside the note itself to see what that's going to look like on the page. If you don't like it, just move it to the appropriate location and deselect again. Notice that when you do click the border at the top here for a note that contains a table, the entire contents are selected within that table as well. So it's another way if we want to change formatting, maybe change the font for example to something different.
Let's go to Arial maybe. You can see the end result there looks pretty good. So that's all there is to moving your table around on the page and moving contents within your table.
