If you have to rearrange rows in a table, there’s no need to cut and paste. You can quickly move rows up or down with a simple keyboard shortcut.
To do so, follow these steps:
- Select the row or rows you want to move.
- Press the Shift + Alt + the up or down arrow key on your keyboard. The Shift + Alt + Up Arrow moves the row up by one row and the Shift + Alt + Down Arrow moves the row down.
That’s it! This shortcut also works with paragraphs. Select the paragraph and press Shift + Alt + Up Arrow to move the paragraph above the preceding paragraph or Shift + Alt + Down Arrow to move it below the following paragraph.
I find this shortcut to be a real time saver.
