YES PLEASE! CAN WE HAVE SUPPORT FOR TABLES IN MUSE.
I'm quoting a website that has dozens of tables. Without support for tables, I'll probably price myself out of a job.
Love the rest of Muse though, nice one!
Yes, please, add support for tables.
I'd also appreciate the tables, but, since you're asking for a workaround, here's one :
- Create a Google spreadsheet document, style it as close to your needs as possible.
- Trim unnecessary columns/rows
- in File > Export > Save as .html (current page)
- Ask to view the source code (in Chrome : cmd-alt-U)
- That page is quite long, but that's what it takes to build a table… (and a simple one, may be that's why we still don't have tables in Muse)
- Select everything between the <body> </body> tags (here it starts with a </style> tag in the first line)
Second step, in Muse :
- In Object > insert HTML
- Paste the code (should only have <style> and <table> tags)
Third step, if necessary, use Brackets or Edge Code, or whatever basic web editor to enhance the output.
Hi Franck, good information there, thanks. I did try using Dreamweaver to create CSS styled tables too.
The html can be inserted from the DW table into Muse in a similar manner.
Other people have mentioned creating tables in InDesign and exporting to jpg, then inserting as an image.
However, that means the table won't be editable by the Business catalyst CMS.
Yeah, jpgs are "cute", but when we're talking about information, it's the worst choice… I hope the team is able to build a good table module, as there seems to be a huge request, and maybe not trying to re-build excel from scratch
What would help is if people in this thread could post examples of the tables they want to make, to see how that could iterate through Muse's development : Not anticipating enormous features, and slowly building step by step the pieces users need.
Agree, here's a simple table example. Not a big deal I would have thought. The text is editable in the BC CMS.
The ability to merge cells/columns would be nice on more complex tables... a bit like InDesign tables.
If we could applied fills/strokes to table and cell borders... again, in a similar way to ID.
I'm loving Muse, but not having tables is a rather large 'gap in the plan'.
