Working with tables in Google Docs has always been a little frustrating, with not much flexibility in the settings. I normally prefer to copy and paste cells from a Google Sheet, but a recent update will cut that step out completely. It was a highly requested feature and now you can finally merge table cells in Google Docs.

All you need to do is highlight the cells you’d like to merge, right click inside the selected cells and select Merge cells. You can also select Merge cells from the Table drop-down in the menu at the top of your screen.
