Can ya'll please put in a fix so we are allowed to use the arrow keys in tables and such? When i'm typing stuff in tables, I want to use the arrow keys to go to the next cell. I am unable to right now. I have to take my hand off the keyboard and go to the mouse every single time and it throws off my rhythm.

In Design View, while using actual <table> tags in CC2020, the arrows do allow you to move through the individual cells or <td> tags just as previous versions of DW have.

However, in the last site you provided code for (in your previous post) you aren't actually using any kind of table, but rather multiple <div> and <span> tags. Since your layout is not in a table, DW can't and won't treat it as one.

You would need to completely rewrite your <div>/<span> code as actual <table> code to get DW to treat it as a table and allow arrowing through cells the way you remember.

If it's really a <table>, switch to Design view and use the Tab key.  Or use Shift+Tab to move backwards.
