Sometimes information starts as a list, and then you want to expand it into a multi-column table. It would be nice if this could be done at the touch of a button (or un-done, at least when the table only has one column).
This seems like a somewhat specialist use case. Even if we did have a tool it would not be obvious how to expose it to the user in a way that would be discoverable when you need it, but not confusing to new users.
I would suggest:
- Unlist to get multiple lines
- Paste in a spreadsheet editor
- Add columns, paste back into VE.
Ed, I realize that I'm just whingeing here, but I need this again, in the opposite direction. I've got links in a spreadsheet that I need to be links in a list. Or just plain 'paragraphs' of links. Just definitely not a table, and without losing the links (which is what all of the "remove formatting" options seem to do).
