Description

When you open the formatting help popup it lacks info about tables. AFAIK with textile markup it is possible to create tables using markup like that:

|cell|cell|cell|
|another cell|merged cell||

Output:

cell cell cell
another cell another cell another cell

So as you see it is possible to create tables - too bad that help does not mention it - I needed to look after textile documentation to get that info. For me it is no problem but I manage Redmine for less technical people and they probably dont even look at help but strictly at the toolbar - when there is no table icon it means there is no tables. ;)

I agree, but what would a "table" button insert ? Two '|' ? We would probably need something a bit more evolved for such a button, such as a pop-up window asking for
  • number of rows
  • number of columns
  • use headers ? (checkbox)

Once the template syntax is inserted, it probably becomes more natural to fill the cells and tweak it by hand.

It could work like in MS Word or OpenOffice.
