It would be nice to double click on a table and for it to switch to an "Edit Mode". It should have all similar functionality of any basic spread sheet, but the icons and formating tools are shown surrounding the table. Column/Row size should be dragable or editable via character/number size. Character formatting by icon, tool or right click context. Control of repeat region and pagination could be additional drag functionality. Insertion and deletion of row or column could be a right click option (dependant on selection). This should interface should replace all table types: including family table, hole tables, pattern tables, actually everything. A common interface being the idea.
