Description Peter Cigliano 2014-05-29 19:37:06 UTC
A VERY common task when creating a spreadsheet with many columns is to create a narrow fixed width separator column in between each column of data.

It would be uber-awesome if you guys could automate this feature: create a formatting item where a user can simply insert a column that acts as a pre-formatted border between cell columns. 

BTW, you guys are the best!

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Can you [pls provide a picture of a draft / mockup, so that I can perfectly understand your idea?
