I often use tables to format content in emails/documents. I don't always apply borders to these, so when the width is zero, I'd love to see something like grey-dashed lines when in edit mode.
I know that there are superb 3rd party tools for this but it would be create if we could pro grammatically control tables in rich text much better, e.g. setting the colour of an individual cell [ editied for typos ]
Weather the table is placed on a form, inside a cell of another table, in a frame of a frameset, on a page, etc it should be possible to have it's height take up 100% of the container.
For Notes client (as opposed to Web client):
I know tables claim to support fixed width column sizes, but in many respects they behave more like relative widths than fixed widths. e.g. If the table width is 8" and a column width is specified as 2" then it really only occupies 25% ...
When creating a button you have the option of making the width 'Fit to Content'. It would be nice to allow a columns width to also have this option as tables are commonly used to keep multi-value fields in alignment
Predominantly for table column widths, but I'd like to see all design element widths based upon a formula
I realise it couldn't be done for Views (after all, which document's fields would you use?) but for tables, it would be nice to expand or reduce a column width based ...
I have no idea what the reason is behind the restriction of levels of nested tables (8, I believe)
Often you have a rich text field nested in a couple of nested tables, so the level users can create is limited. Especially nested tables are used to create document ...
