View Full Version : Aaaaaaaaaaaa Cells Stop Jumping Around!

08-26-2005, 01:42 PM
I really cannot figure this out sometimes.

I draw cells out etc inside tables fine go where i want.

However, sometimes they just jump around add something to the bottom of the cell when i try move it up not having it!!

This is in layout view, go to standard make sure cell size i want etc nope still not having it.

Really annoying this time as i need about 3 cells flush together as they are different colour blocks.

The top cell contains an include of my navigation.

I have a main table which is 750 wide, when the cell in the middle its fine move to edge where i want it, the cells jumps bigger down leaving a gap that just wont move, move the cell across and it pulls across the whole main table making it smaller!

This really really does my head in as i just cannot stop it from jumping around sometimes feel like i have no control of stuff.

Anyone help please

First things first. Give up using DW Layout mode to "draw" tables if you want to get anywhere with web design.

Second go through Murrays tutorial to understand tables
