Summary0002564: Table Editor like Story editor for tables
DescriptionNow it's hard to work with tables. There are different workarounds to import and edit tables but is really hard.

Maybe you can create an editor especialy for tables like the Story editor. You can change the styles of different cells and of course the text.
TagsNo tags attached.

Tables are scheduled for a rewrite anyway, hopefully during the 1.3.x development series.

I've just had a go at the Insert Table feature in 1.3.6 - it's so buggy and sinister as to be unusable! I would remove it, it does some really nasty things. If you persevere long enough to actually create a table, the cluster of text frames plays merry hell with the x,y coordinates of the table as a "whole", so if ever you try to copy and paste it, disaster follows!

The very latest beta of Inkscape is great for making custom tables and writes fabulous PDFs which pull straight in to Scribus.
