In a previous post, waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2017 in this thread, I posted a video on how SoftPress Freeway does it. I know this very well because I still use Freeway to this day and have been a continuous user since 1999, in fact.
I disagree that we need “more patience.” We need “more people” asking for this same feature. If every Blocs user asked for it, no doubt it would pretty quickly move up on the priority list.
And just because another similar web design tool (similar to Blocs) doesn’t have a responsive table feature doesn’t mean it is impossible to implement. Indeed, it could be a very UNIQUE SELLING POINT of Blocs!
Seriously, the absence of a table Bric and a Search Bric are pretty much the only two reasons I still use Freeway. I cannot rebuild my existing sites in Blocs without those features. And since many pages have tabular data in tables that are very large, doing it all in code in Blocs isn’t realistic.
It doesn’t need to be anything fancy. Heck, the table tool in Freeway isn’t fancy. I might even be willing to say “forget it even being responsive and just give me a WYSIWYG table tool in Blocs.” It’s best if its responsive, but if that will take another 10 years to implement, then throw out the responsive and give me what you can now, in Blocs, in a nice WYSIWYG manner, with no code hacks required.
Even if some argue that “a good number of Blocs users do NOT need a table tool,” it’s really not possible to say that in any factual way. It’s not like we’ve taken a poll. And I assure you that once it’s implemented, all Blocs users will sit wide-eyed in awe, eager to give a try.
Where there’s a will, there’s always a way.
