Hide table rows and columns
I would like the ability to hide table rows and columns, like can be done in Excel.
Even better than hiding them would be the ability to apply conditional text to specific rows or columns. Right now, if I need to hide a row, I have to cut it and paste it onto the pasteboard, then when I need it, I have to go back into the table and try to reinsert it.

"hiding" a table column is possible by scripting if the column contains text only. To avoid overset text all the text in that row can be done with conditional text where the condition is set to invisible.
Entirely "hiding" a row is not possible. Even by scripting.
It once was with older InDesign versions like CS4 or CS5.
See some samples tables in that document:
Other constraints: If you have a numbered list you cannot set the auto numbers to conditional text, I think.
