GREP code table
Make a GREP code for table in Find/Change box dialogue
Can you explain how this would be used, is the end goal to find a some stuff restricting the search to Tables, or is it something else. It would really help if you can share how you plan to use this new GREP code for tables.

It would be very useful to add characters (such as a hard return) to frames containing a single table (without any trailing character after <0016>).
Also, saving the "recent" GREP query history per document (or a favorites list?) instead of having the rolling global history. I've had to start saving GREP recipes on the pasteboard, but it would be nice to have the dialog remember them for that document.
Need more controlling in search GREP, as in:
1. When remove trilling space, the table will stick directly to previous paragraph, or when remove empty line the table will stick directly to next paragraph. Therefore if we have a code for table we can skip these issues.
2. Add style to table directly.
3. Exclude tables from matches, i.g. table code\K.+$ or (?<=table code).+?(?=table code), ..etc.

I think the problem is more generic… in the @ menu (in Find/Change), there is a Markers submenu with many different things people need to search for in Type, including "anchored objects." You should add "Tables".
This would be very helpful because if you have many tables in your document, you may want to use Find/Change to find them, one at a time.
It would be even better if you could use Find/Change to search for all the tables and then apply a table style to them! :-)
