Is there a solution for deleting this table? I was looking for a button to use plain text instead of html but I did not see one. I was hoping that with converting it to plain text, the table would be gone.
This is a really annoying problem, for which I've just been pointed to a solution else-web. This way you don't have to change to plain text mode and lose other formatting that you might want to keep:
- Position your cursor just above the table
- Use shift+down-arrow to move to just below the table. Note that the table will not highlight as you might expect.
- Press "delete".
This only works with keyboard selection - if you select using the mouse you can't delete it!
I believe Mukesh's "Plain Text Mode" method works, but as suggested by Flyto, I don't want to redo the formatting. Yet, while I believe Flyto's and yogs's solutions worked for them then, it doesn't work for me now.
Nonetheless trying their methods made me discover a solution for me:
This is what I have followed to remove the table.
- Select everything by dragging the mouse and press Delete. This will delete all the text in the signature and leaves only empty boxes.
- Select the radio button
- Reopen the
Settingsto see the table gone. Now you would be able to see that the table is gone.
All of these solutions worked for me except for the top answer. To be clear, Plain-Text Mode will remove the table but it will do so by permanently removing ALL formatting in the entire rest of the email along with it. There will be no way to undo this, so that solution basically boils down to "you can remove the table by removing everything".
(Since I apparently lack the points to edit or interact with that answer in any way and someone who does will almost certainly see and delete this answer while leaving that one, all I can do is humbly request that person please at least also amend the genuinely harmful solution that bubbled to the top here to include a warning or something. Thank you and sorry to bother you.)
