The new Table Menu

  • Hello, was super happy with tinymce since 2011 but the new table menu has a lot less options than before. Why.

    Why can i not configure the borders of the cell as easy as before including changing their colors or even add borders at all easily now?

    Why can i not insert the lenght of the table as before but have to do one more step now to do it?

    Same with the alignment. Before i was able to insers the alighnment, table lenght and number of rows and cells all in one step..now i have to do it manually one after another. = more really un-needed work

    Another problem is the new horizontal rule with the line getting added without me being able to configure the lenght of it now.

    This is a change in TinyMCE. Most of the settings are available after you insert a table and click in a cell. Then you can select either Table Properties, Cell Properties or Row Properties from the Table button or from the menu.

    This should really be configured in the theme, and if you need to use more than one table “look”, there can be multiple looks added with CSS classes. Makes all this so much easier.

    These changes are really bad.

    Guess i have to copy-paste old tables etc, now because it is complicated and more time consuming now to make new ones. Wonder why the old options were removed.Whats the point of removing usability?

    And there is more

    Rightclick in the textfield, everywhere brings up the insert links /insert table /row /collumn /cell properties.

    It is not possible to simply copy /paste a text or part of it as usual. Yes i know there is the strg+ c or v option but is this a bug maybe?

    TinyMCE has a “Context menu” plugin, disable it from TinyMCE Advanced’s settings page and you’ll get back the standard browser context menu.

    Ah…thanks

    There is one more thing. =S

    The image editor is not visible somehow. I placed it extra in the third row after it not being visible while editing a post. In the options of the plugin it is visible /moveable.

    All other parts of the editor are visible and working as they should.

    I’ll try to fix that in the next couple of days. In WordPress 3.9 images are edited in the “media” modal (the same one used for uploading and inserting images). It should open when you click the “pencil” icon that shows over the image. The “native” TinyMCE image editing modal has less features than the WordPress one.

    Great plugin, Andrew! I noticed with the Table Cell Properties in Version 4.0.1, the Vertical Alignment option is gone. Is that a result of TinyMCE 4?

    @adambcarrier yeah, think it will be added back soon. Hoping to include an updated “table” plugin in the next version.

    Is there a way to get Class menu for the table cell ?

    Any update on the new table plugin?
