    Default split cell in a Table (Word)

    For various reasons, I often have to split cells in a table. For the most part, I want to keep one column, but multiple rows. The default is for two columns, no matter what the arrangement is in the table.

    Is there a way to change the default "Split Cell" dialog box?

    You can't change the defaults. You could, however, use a macro to perform a row split:
    Code:
    Sub Demo()
    With Selection
      If .Information(wdWithInTable) = True Then
        .Cells(1).Split Numrows:=InputBox("Number of rows?"), NumColumns:=1
      End If
    End With
    End Sub
    You could even assign such a macro to a shortcut key combination.
