While we're talking underlying theory/structure:I suspect many tables in which one wants to conditionalize a column could be refactored so thatthe columns were instead rows, which are conditionable. Thoughts? Yes, theoretically, if you didn't have spanned cells, you could hide/show the cells

Playing with Frame12's (yes, we FINALLY got to upgrade) new conditional tag interface, and something occurred to me that has before but I never got around to asking. WHY can't Frame apply conditional tags to table columns? It's not a feature I particularly need (although there's been a time or

Hi Lin... I think it has to do with the ability to have spanned cells. But also I don't think that you can conditionalize a cell object. You can conditionalize the content within a cell, but you can't just remove (hide) a cell in a table. You'd have a hole. Yes, theoretically, if you didn't
