Description DM 2019-03-10 22:24:35 UTC
Table - Split Table is greyed out when you are in a cell that falls across a page boundary and your cursor is in the part of the cell showing on the over-the-page part of the cell, but Split Table is not greyed out when you are in the prior bottom-of-the-page part of the cell. This is shown in the attached item.

Actually I think it's worse/more general than that - I'm on a cell that's at the top of a page and can't split the table there as the cell above it falls on the previous page, but if I add some paragraph marks prior to that above cell to shift them both down so they are on the same page the Split Table becomes available.
