No response, there is another thread somewhere as well.  I don't understand, it would take a day for them to do, especially as it was a function that was present before.

I can understand not having page numbers on the table of contents as I see Google docs for online/hyperlinked consumption.  You need page numbers for paper publishing. For paper work Office is better.

But I can't understand why we can't merge cells in a table in Docs.

<< especially as it was a function that was present before.>> not in docs it wasn't, except by diving into the HTML code which one could do in the old Writely version.

Of course.  I fail to understand why Google don't address this issue - do they not use Gdocs internally?

​You are definitely right !​ Year has been 2013 but no one can  merge two cells no matter use free or paid.
I got bored checking periodically if Google add this feature to docs with hope!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your continued patience while the team worked on this feature. I'm happy to announce that, as of today, the ability to merge cells in Docs tables is now supported.

Happy merging!

Cheers,
