SmartDown II provides support for MarkDown Extra like tables. SmartDown I had also a such feature but I really wanted to improve to user experience when manipulating tables.
Create them using a snippet or the Smart Popup
To insert a new table, you have several options:
Use a snippet
Simply type “table” without quotes and press tab. SmartDown will then insert a new table.
Use the Smart Popup formating toolbar
You can alternatively add a table by using the dedicated icon in the Smart Popup toolbar.
Having perfectly aligned tables is not mandatory in Markdown. However, it is difficult to clearly see what you are doing if you do not have a minimum of formating.
After fighting for years to add “spaces” to keep thing clean, I decided to delegate this task to the editor.
When you modify a table, SmartDown II now reformat it on the fly.
Easily add / remove columns and rows
When right-clicking in a table, you have dedicated options available allowing to :
- Add columns or rows
- Remove columns or rows
- Change alignment of columns
