Two verses in a row, aplied full justified aligment
Mostly I have to work with RTL text, and sometimes we have poetry in footnotes, and 95% of RTL poetry is in full justified mode, with two verses in a row.
In that case, i need two different styles in a row, a different style for each verse. For this, i use tables, and i just can't..
I want Writer to be able to have tables in footnotes too.

Do you mean footers or footnotes? I am asking because if I want to insert a table in the footnotes this works for me (Go to INSERT -> FOOTER -> DEFAULT STYLE and then go to TABLE -> INSERT -> TABLE).
Confirmed. Status set to NEW. Platform set to All/All. The related AskLO thread is:
Quoting my answer in that thread:

This comes a bit late but as a workaround to the problem in the original description, it is possible to use two textboxes side by side. Format the paragraph inside each to set the alignment to justified and in one of them, set a tab stop. I do not know how it would look in RTL but in English I set the right textbox to have a right tab equal to the width of the textbox. It maybe the opposite, so set the left textbox to have a left tab at 0.

LibO does render tables imported from doc/docx/rtf
Is there any specific reason why it isn't allow tables in footnotes aren't allowed?
It makes no sense to be able to import/ edit them from RTF/DOC/DOCX, but not being able to insert them inside LibO.
The risk on a layout loop is the same, IMHO.
