    I have been working on a template where I have placed a two column table on the front page, left side being for a graphic for a letterhead, and right side column for text.
    My problem is that on the second page, I would like the document to continue on without any table. I would like for the text to flow from the table into regular margin document on the second page. Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks

    I'm wondering if inserting a Page Break after the Table would do it. Have you tried that?

    I have tried a Page Break, and a few other breaks.

    I'm assuming that it didn't work. How about pasting some text in after the page break? That's a trick I use for switching back and forth between fonts.

    Really, it shouldn't be a problem to continue typing after a table. I'm just not sure what is going wrong in Word. My standard fall back would be to replace the plist file, but I've no idea if that would solve this.

    For some reason it's just not working correctly.

    Ok, try the plist thing. Do you need instructions?

    Have you reinstalled Office? That might be the next step if a new plist doesn't help.

    com.microsoft.Word.prefs.plist

    That file is found in Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/Microsoft
    (make sure to follow that path -I don't know your user name - there are multiple Library folders on your Mac)
    Drag the file (in title) out of that window and park it on your Desktop.
    Now go into Word. This will create a default plist file in the above folder.
    Does the problem go away?

    If not, it's time to consider reinstalling Office. You'll want to use the uninstaller to clean it off your Mac first.
