BETTER TABLE CONTROL FEATURES!!!!
this!!! Complete overhaul to tables in InDesign !!!!! https://forums.adobe.com/message/10898726
IT IS SO ON THE MONEY and I am sure there are other great suggestions here, but seriously indesign tables are pathetic
right now I am especially vexed by this fact that Joe Jacob writes:
"Why is it that the total width/height of a table cannot be constrained to the size of the bounding box it's in? Why, when the table exceeds these limits, does a column or row just disappear? "
"Why am I left just eyeballing it to make sure my table is neat and evenly spaced out? Why isn't there an option to disallow columns/rows to disappear when they exceed the limits - instead of just adjusting their own width/height to allow room? It's 2019. Tables have been like this for years. Adobe is a huge corporation with millions in revenue - why can't they just assign someone to write a new table system?"
Yep, tables are awful. Very flaky with styles, and we can't we set a row height/column width in a style?????

How about being able to define the total width and height of a table when creating it.
That would be really useful, rather than eyeballing it.
A snap to text box/column width would also be appreciated.
