how to type text below a table

I added a small table near the top of a page and now would like to type more text under it, but LibreOffice doesn't appear to allow that. I've tried going to the last position of the last column and using Alt+Enter, but that simply takes me to the top of the next page. Surely there is a way that I am missing.

I needed to press ALT + ENTER TWICE (the first time it just created another row in the table). I hope this helps :)

One possibility is that, by chance, a page break got associated to the table. Check if this is the case by: Right click on the table → Properties → Text flow tab.

Side note: Ctrl+Enter inserts a hard page break. Alt+Enter doesn't seem to do anything, but that may be me.

Whenever I start a new document and insert a small table in it, there's always a blank paragraph below it where I can enter text. So - more information please. Make sure that View - Non printing characters is turned on (Ctrl+F10) so that you can see the paragraph marks.

Not sure of you have a problem with page limit, but in the many cases I've finished with a table at the end of a document, I've only been able to insert post-table text selcting the whole table (move the mouse over the top-left corner of the table till it becamens a diagonal top-left-to-bottom-rigt arrow and click) and CTRL-X it; then insert many new-lines and CTRL-V the table in an upper possition.

Rude, but it runs...
