Description Viktor Mileikovskyi 2020-08-31 04:47:33 UTC
Description:
Most of my tables have the second line with numbers of columns. It should be repeated on each page. But in "Table Properties" dialog I can repeat rows only from the first one.
Please, enhance the dialog.

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a table with multiple rows. Open Table - Table Properties and open Text Flow tab

Actual Results:
[v] Repeat heading   First [ 1 ]-+ rows.

Expected Results:
[v] Repeat heading   From row [ 1 ]-+ to row [ 1 ]-+


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
Workaround:
To repeat an intermediate row, split a table before the row and delete an empty line between the new tables. Vertical borders should be adjusted twice - on both tables.

Give me an example of table with the second row needed to repeat and the first one not. Without confidential data.

The table is usually splitted by 6...7 pages dependent on the type of publication and interested organizations. The first line should not be repeated by our editing rules.

Thanks for the document. That makes the use case more clear. I can support this idea, but I also think, it has low importance in comparison to other enhancements.

This would add a lot of complexity to the simple dialog. How about a solution where the first heading is just another table?
