Moving a paragraph with keyboard shortcut down through different cells in Writer?

I can do this outside tables wonderfully. Also inside one cell. But not to the next cell.

How do you do it inside a cell?

The same way as in normal text in Writer. I have just written about Writer, not Calc.

How do you do it in normal text?

Try ctr alt arrow up, down. Or Shift Ctrl arrow … I do not know what is working on your side.
I have changed it to the first mentioned shortcut via Libre Office - Tools - Customize - Keyboard - All commands - Move Up resp. Move down - then delete the Key shown at the right side (if you do not want it). Then, on the upper half of the window choose the Shortcut key you wish for the command and click Modify. Thus you will combine the key with the command. Does it help? :slight_smile:

@inJesus, Ctrl+Alt+Up/Down Arrow are the default shortcut to move up/down, but don’t work within a table cell.

And Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down Arrow select to paragraph begin/end, but don’t move anything.

At my laptop, it works as I have explained. I have made a little video

@inJesus, Can you share your LibreOffice version and operating system? To do that, choose menu Help - About LibreOffice and copy from there. May be a version 7 improvement (within cells, not between cells).

  1. If the cursor is at the first line of a given cell of a row (not of row 1), you can hold Shift and press in sequence Up Arrow and Down Arrow to select the cell. Then can cut (Ctrl+X) and paste (Ctrl+V) in another cell.

  2. If the cursor is at the last line of a given cell of a row (not of last row), you can hold Shift and press in sequence Down Arrow and Up Arrow to select the cell. Then can cut and paste in another cell.

  3. A workaround to reorder content in different cells is to use numbers/letters at the beggining of each cell (or add a column only for numbers), then sort the table.

  4. Also can Convert the Table to Text (no help found yet), move with Ctrl+Alt+Up/Down Arrow, and finally Convert Text to Table.

I am working with LibreOffice (x86); OS: Windows 6.1.

New in 6.4:

Cut command cuts the selected table rows or columns, if they are selected by enhanced table selection (clicking in front of them)
After that, paste command inserts the removed table part before the actual row/column
