Description jimplante 2004-10-08 07:00:17 UTC
It appears not to be possible to place two or more tables side by side without using frames. It would 
add utility to the word processor if one could simply drag tables around and anchor them like frames. 

When one inserts a graphic, then adds a caption, Writer appears to cut the graphic, create a frame the 
same size, place the graphic, and add the caption where it's told. Why not treat tables the same way? 
When a table is created, Writer should create a frame appropriately sized, and place the table inside the 
frame. This would enable placement side by side; tables would be draggable. 

As OOo stands now, one can create a table using AutoText, and I'm not sure how my suggestion would 
affect that utility.

At the moments, this is only possible when placing tables inside frames.
We need kindof "floating" tables; tables which can have an attribute lkike the
wrapping of frames.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
