Default Wrapping text On Table, Possible?

Is it possible to wrap the text Im writing in a table and continue writing to the next cell?



for example







I just want that text to carry down to the next cell. Seems super simple, maybe Im just missing something?

Not super simple. Table cells are containers (like train cars). What you are asking for is that if Car A is full new passengers move to Car B. Problem is there is no door from Car A to Car B. Just one door into each car.

What, exactly are you trying to do? Is the purpose of the table to give people lines to type on?

You could put a graphic of a lined tablet behind your page and then it would appear that text is flowing from line to line. You would have to fiddle with spacing.

You can also give your table fixed row heights so that the cell will not expand.
