How to Combine Cells in Google Docs

Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to combine cells in Google Docs.

Step 1

First, open the document that contains a table.

Step 2

Use your cursor to select the cell you want to split. Right-click on that cell and select the Split cell option.

Step 3

You can choose to split a cell 2 or more times. You have the option to split it into multiple columns, multiple rows, or a combination of the two.

If we split cells by column, our selected cell will be divided vertically into two or more cells.

If we split cells by row, our selected cell will be divided horizontally instead.

Step 4

To undo the split action, we can use the Merge action. Start by selecting the cells you want to merge.

Right-click on the selection and click Merge cells.

Your selection should now be converted into a single cell.
