Example of pseudo-tables with tabulations and convertions in tables

I find that building pseudo-tables with tabulations is often useful and in those cases I use (and teach) to separate each row with forced Carriage Return (Shift+Enter).

This way it's not necessary to select each row of this pseudo-table, for example, to modify a tabulation. It's enough to have keyboard cursor inside that unique paragraph.

If You try to convert such a pseudo-table in a real table with the specific function, it will ignore CR and create a one row table with a number of columns that equals intended columns multiplied by intended rows.

I'm not a coder (anymore), but I guess it should be an easy feature to implement, just adding the CR code to the existing "End of Paragraph" in the parsing of the "End of Line" function. It should be about an OR operator.
