There are some things that would make tables far more useful:
-Ability to use 'snapshots' in table
-Ability to add hyperlinks in table
-Ability to format vertically - you currently can shade rows, I'd like to shade columns
-Autonumbering - while I can add numbers, it would be nice for it to assign auto numbers.
SimeyC, thanks for the suggestion. I am hoping that we can spend some time later this fall working on improving the table capsule, and I appreciate your suggestions for new features.
(Sorry that I took so long to reply to your suggestion. I've been on vacation.)
In another thread, Cardisa also suggested being able to add a border (like we allow in the Photo capsule).
There are a few users who are making suggestions to tables, so I'm linking to this thread (since it came first, SimeyC), as the catch-all thread for suggestions to improve the Table Capsule.
I use a lot of tables and it would be great if you could highlight a cell using a colored background. You can apply 'bold' to a row, column or cell - how about allowing a user to highlight using a background color - even one would be great.
Support! Love the idea of hyperlinks in tables, because I was trying to use it the other day and it didn't work out well.

The table capsule does not appear to be working. It won't allow a file to be uploaded.

Can you change the column width of the columns of the table capsule? It seems there is no option for doing that. In my opinion it is a must feature for a table.

I was just wondering if HubPages has the option, or has given any thought to adding an option, in the table capsule to format column width. I use a lot of tables and have never seen this, but would love to be able...

We just rolled out a few changes to the site. Most of the updates were minor, the big change was the addition of the table capsule. As the name suggests, it allows you to display tables of information in...
