add split/merge cells to table feature
Related to "Only if you make it better" suggestion
tables need to be more functional than just grids

We're in the process of moving from Google suite to Office 365 in our organisation - and this is one of my biggest bugbears. I use tables a lot to help make it easier for people to understand information, but without merge it makes it more difficult.
I was just about to start another doc to work on collaboratively, but I really think it would be most helpful to the end user if I can use a table layout with merge cells - so I find myself in a dilemma - do I collaborate using the Word app to make it easier to create, or do I do it the old way in a silo with potentially lots of versions floating about, but knowing the end product will be easier for the end user to understand (after a ton of faffing making sure I've included all the updates).
I miss Google...
You can't get it even if you pay!

I use Office Online so that I can use compatible office files in Linux. Without office online I wouldn't use office at all. This is a severely limiting function that goes not implemented while other online office tools are reported to do it (Google Docs). Stop turning Microsoft into malware and make things your customers actually want! We don't want malicious advertising, we don't want forced updates and we don't want an upgrade program that shuffles around the way you cancel to trick you into upgrading (malware behavior). We do want programs that work, stop working against and start working for us!
This functionality really needs to be addressed.

When will it be possible to merge and split cells in a Word-online document. The app is out 3 years now and it still has the same small functionality comparing to Google Docs....
Why is this??
