Word – How to insert text line between two tables in Microsoft Word

microsoft word

I have two tables one just below another, and I can't insert a new empty line of regular text between them.

  • When I hit Enter, Microsoft Word only adds a new row to the first or the second table, or to the text contained in one of the tables.
  • When I try to paste, the pasted contents (text, or table) also gets inserted into one of the tables (so I even got a table in a table…).
  • I've tried the "Document Outline" mode too, but to no success either.

Any ideas?

Ctrl+Shift and Enter works for me on Word 14 (aka Word 2010 in Office 2010).

This works, if your cursor is at the start of the second table.
