How to merge complete columns / rows in a table

I have not found how to do the following in writer, not in the french or english help sections, also not as bug/enhancement in Bugzilla : 

I would like to merge two columns of a table so that the merge is done for each row separately, e.g. : 

column1 | column2
A       | B
C       | D
E       | F

should become only one column, but still different rows


However, then the option should also be that this is done for the rows, by column, giving the following result : 
Column 1   | Column 2
A C        | B D
E          | F

see attached file of this is not clear

If this is already possible, it would be great to have some hint in the help section of "Merge"

Thanks for considering this

Sounds like a reasonable enhancement request.

Marking as:
New - valid request
Low - currently you can merge the cells you just have to do it a slower way (one column/row at a time)

Note: Just because it's a valid request does not mean necessarily that it will be implemented. The vast majority of enhancement requests are done by volunteers who choose what enhancements they want to create - if a volunteer finds this one to be something they'd want to do, then they will assign it to themselves. Thanks for the suggestion!
