I've created a 38 inch long (per page) structure chart for a film I'm producing - using a table. This is to keep track of all the scenes, etc. I originally intended it as just something on my laptop to refer to. It's become very useful and I want to print out a hard copy. The only way I can see to do this is to break the table into three 13 inch segments to fit on 8.5 x 14 legal size paper. So what I want to be able to do is to highlight a column every 13 inches and REMOVE that column completely, not DELETE it but remove it, thus creating TWO tables. The plan is to break the table into 3 segments, each of which I can then print on a piece of legal size paper. I remember being able to break at table in Word. I can't figure out how to do it in Pages. If such a thing is possible? All ears, Ben
Copy your cell's contents and paste into linked text boxes as we explained here many times.

Salut encore Yvan, I've got hundreds of cells. Unless I can do an 'intant' conversion of table to text cells this would be too complicated and laborious a process. Can I convert table to 'text cells'? I don't think so, you say copy and paste ... that would be hundreds of copy & paste. So I took your suggestion for fixing my 'line' and applied it to the cutting table process. I'm going to make three copies of the overall table, and then delete the columns from each to create three separate pages. Very much appreciated Y, Thank you, Ben
Thank you Peter, It is an awkward table ... very very long ... with a graph line overlaid, plus titles outside the table etc. etc. I tried pasting it (at your suggestion) into a word processing format ... but this would require me to resize all the cells after the fact - as it is squashing the hundred odd columns into the 14 inch limitation of the new page size ... and would take a mucho long time to reorganize (plus the graph line appears on a different page etc. etc.. Thank you for the idea, I will bear it in mind in future when doing smaller tables. Much appreciated, Ben
