Hey all, so I have a table in writer with multiple columns and rows. When I reach the end of a row within a column/the row is full, as I continue to type, I want the cursor to automatically move down to the next row and begin filling that one up, instead of continuing to type in the same row and causing the red arrow to appear as the text cannot fit within that row.

Verify Table>Autofit submenu: Optimal Row Height may be grayed out. To reenable, Table>Autofit>Row Height... and check box Fit to size, click OK.

There's no such option - to jump to next table row. @ajlittoz's advise is the best you can get - to wrap lines staying in the same cell.
