When moving a table to the next page, you often need to duplicate its title in the form "Continuation of the table (title or table number)." Now you have to do this manually, which takes a lot of time if the table is long. When editing a table, you often have to repeat all the work, because the pagination of the table changes.
It would be great if you added the function of adding a title to parts of tables that were automatically transferred to the following pages.
When automatically moving part of a table to the next page, it is not possible to add the title of the transferred part of the table, for example, "Continuation of the table (table name or number)."
The ability to determine the header format for the part of the table automatically transferred to the next page, for example, "Continuation of the table (table name or number)."
The header is displayed before the part of the table automatically transferred to the next page.

Would be a nice enhancement, indeed. Your workflow probably means:
* split the table at the right position
* copy the caption from above and insert as text (watch closely to update on changes) or use cross-reference to this field
* add some text like "contd." to the caption
While it might be possible it likely needs a lot of development effort.
UI-wise we could add an option "[ ] Repeat table caption" enabling the edit "add: [ ]".
I wouldn't add things like "add before [ ] mid [ ] after [ ]" with special references to achieve, for example "Continuation of the table 5." Rather have "Table 5: Foo (continued)"
The problem is that the table header is now processed and configured separately from the table. And it is not clear what is generally the heading of the table in the document.
It would be better if the table title was configured in its properties. And the table title would be a bit of an auto-assembled table of contents without the possibility of direct editing.
In this case, you can specify two formats for the headers, one for the first part of the table, the second for the rest of the table.
Table N - Statement of documents.
Continuation of table N.
Just two text fields with the ability to add any text and a special code for the automatic table number.
(In reply to Maxim from comment #2)
> Table N - Statement of documents.
> Continuation of table N.
But the "table title" is a caption with all limitations. You also want this for figures, formulas, etc.
