Welcome to the IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the IBM Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Allow indentation of tables

In Wikis, Blogs, Forums, Activities etc., the Rich Text editor allows to insert tables.

However, there is no way to indent the whole table to the right.

This would make sense in structured documents, where tables should be alligned with indented paragraphs of text.

 

Illustration:

The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. 

This is my table. It should really be alliged with the surrounding paragraph of text.

The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the laxy dog. 

 

Right now, one needs to switch to HTML mode, and insert something like "margin-left:80" into the HTML code.

It would be desirable to have left/right arrows for table indentation, or at least the table properties could be extended to allow editing the left margin via GUI.
