Re: [wpmac] Inserting an additional row into an existing table
- As far as I know, the answer to your question is No. However, a
single press of the down arrow key to move to the next table row
isn't that hard, is it?
One thing that may help is that you can add an Insert Table Row
button to your toolbar, which is a lot easier than using the menu

Not that it is a chose to invoke the macro, but I guess there is no
way to alter WP's preferences to affect this behavior.

insert the extra row after where the cursor is sitting, rather than
to have to move the cursor. Consider, for example, wanting to add an
extra line when you are already in the last row and in the rightmost
column of the table.
The macro that Daryl Chinn suggested is more convenient in that
circumstance (which I typically the situation in which I want to add
an extra line.)
Thank you, anyway, for your suggestion.
