Screenshot from Word
Word has a neat feature that tables have a handle in the bottom right corner, and tables can be resized by grabbing that handle with the mouse (both vertically and horizontally). Columns are resized proportionally. It would be great to have something similar in Writer, because the Columns tab in Table Properties isn't user-friendly, albeit useful if the size to be set precisely.
Dear UX team, what's your take on this feature, are there additional considerations to take into account.
A minor question, should the handle positioning depend on left/right alignment of table on page? In Word it doesn't, but behaves according to the setting.
Needs discussion as to implementing the resize of columns and rows, but OK => NEW
Would make this a duplicate of bug 113603, in particular I like the solution of comment 3.
No objection to comment 2 so making it a dup.
