Create latex tables with merged cells from org mode in Emacs

  1. Create a built-in table. The goal is to merge cells header3 and heade4
|---------+---------+---------+--------|
| header1 | header2 | header3 | heade4 |
|---------+---------+---------+--------|
| cell1   | cell2   | cell3   | cell4  |
|---------+---------+---------+--------|
| cell5   | cell6   | cell7   | cell8  |
|---------+---------+---------+--------|

If you do not remember the commands, use the menu window

  1. Convert the built-in table into table mode by replacing manually | with + at the corners of the cells.
+---------+---------+---------+--------+
| header1 | header2 | header3 | heade4 |
+---------+---------+---------+--------+
| cell1   | cell2   | cell3   | cell4  |
+---------+---------+---------+--------+
| cell5   | cell6   | cell7   | cell8  |
+---------+---------+---------+--------+
