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!!
We have started to work on this feature. Will be sharing the beta builds soon. Please subscribe to InDesign CC Prerelease program (https://www.adobeprerelease.com/) to get access to beta builds
praying for this feature on a current 600 page .Indb project with data tables 😓

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.
Are we still begging for this feature? I mean..

Don't be so afraid by "big tables"! …

Hello Adobe team, any news from this feature? We’re all eager to use it on live or beta build at least

Adding the option to allow cells to split across pages would be helpful to a lot of us. https://sites.google.com/view/davidrichard/

This is a features that I desperately need for all my academic typesetting where the author will have two texts that they are comparing (usually Judeo-Arabic and Hebrew). Was curious to know if we are actually going to see this feature. I haven’t seen it the latest pre-release builds.

I had 8 books with a lot of huge cells. Thank you Adobe for not realising this feature that is available in MS Word by decades.

Hi Adobe team,
please work on this feature that would save thousands of hours.
That's really long and not secured to split cells among columns and pages if it's too long.
I hope there's enough votes for a feature requested 2 years ago.
All the best
PLEASE. Pleading with you to add this.
