Merge cells in a table and adding check boxes to it

Avatar

Level 4

Hi,  I'm designing a form in Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES4.  I have a static table that has two columns.  There is a row with merged cells.  I have two check boxes wrapped into a subform.  One caption is wider than the left column, so when I try to add the subform with the check boxes into the merged cells, the merged cells act like they are not merged, it expands the merged row like I'm adding the subform to a non-merged column.  Is there a way to add objects to a merged row in a table and keep the table size what it should be?

I either figured it out or found a workaround.  Here is what I did:

1. Split the cells 

2. Changed the width of one of the check boxes to the same size as the left column

3. Wrapped the check box in a subform

4. Dragged the subform into the left column

5. Selected the subform and the right column cell and merged cells

6. Added the second check box into the subform

7. Changed back the width of the check boxes to what they need to be
