Option to split table rows across pages
Lord please, if you're up there, answer our INDD prayers and make this a feature. A LOT of tables have rows with more content than can be held in a single page or bottom of a page. It's impossible to layout a continuous book or brochure if I can't get the table text to split - it doesn't have to be the default, but give me the option - please, please. WORD does this, be better than Word!!

Before now, I had no idea table rows could not be split across columns. The requirements are so basic. It might not be that often that I need it, but Adobe, this can't be that difficult Much needed idea! I am going to share it with my peers at https://bestexamshelp.com/

I’ve been manually splitting rows now for decades. Why can’t a computer do this work? Of course, I can’t even get the 2021 InDesign to stabilize, so this is really pie-in-the-sky territory with this request.
Any update? Please? it's July 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

730 days after... Still waiting! ****.
Are you crazy? you don't have an option for this? This feature had been available on word for literal years, for an app meant for the creative industry why haven't you figured this out yet?
More over, Id's UI is horrible. Start using InDesign is like experiencing productivity apps back in the early 2000s, obscure, clunky, and counterintuitive. Literally an afterbirth of all adobe apps

Maybe you can define "soon." As in "this year", "this millennium," "this geological epoch" . . . ? "Soon" is beginning to sound like "BS." Hey, Adobe: step up and FIX THIS!

How soon can we expect this feature to roll out? It's been almost 2 years since work on this item was started so I really hope it's available soon.

«We have started to work on this feature. Will be sharing the beta builds soon.» ???????????????????

Yep, Adobe be the honest - give us date! We don't believe it that you "started". It looks like fairy tale!
499 votes, what do you need else here?
Could you please confirm the approximate release version/month for this feature? I could see from your post that you have started this feature last year march, but still no updates about this feature.
This is very important feature to format accounts and financial related tables. Also when we work with Mathematical books with lot of worked example tables, we have to spend lot of time to break rows into multiple pages.

I've changed 6 places of work since 2003 when I've started using InDesign (version 2.0.2). Now I'm changing my profession, exactly when InDesign 2021 came out, and this feature is still not implemented.

I never realised table rows couldn't split across columns until now. Such a basic requirement. I might rarely need it but come on Adobe this can't be hard!!!
Yes please, that's why we pay so much money each year for Adobe CC. At least give us updates or an explanation why this takes so long! It is your obligation to your users.
