Refer to the following Knowledge Base Article, where two new merge tools are registered for the Editor. This allows to merge the selected cell horizontally/vertically with the next row/column cell.

Cell merge / split is a critical feature for a new client of ours. Without it, we will need to go to another tool or custom code the feature ourselves. Not good. 

The example from ImportedUser would meet our needs.

Please let me know if this is coming anytime soon, or if I should make other plans.

Migrating our previous content editor to Kendo's gave us a major leap forward in functionality / capability EXCEPT when it came to tables. We are having to apologize and manage client feedback on this loss of functionality from our previous editor. Not good.

This is an essential feature for Kendo Editor, any plans for implementing it in the near future?

Here is another good example

Merging, copying rows, selecting rows and columns missing

Agree. Seems current support on table merge and formatting stuff is quite poor. It's not convenient from user experience perspective. Also when you copy table from other locations to rich text editor, format easily gets lost, and you can never change them back in editor. Very annoying!

Currently it seems there is not way to select existing cells in html tables and easily perform cell merge or change the properties (background color, border etc) of a range of selected cells.
I'm looking for a similar experience like tinymce gives for modifying tables.
