+1 for me for treeview especially if it's easier.

To me Zim has always been about slightly rich text with hyperlinks, but
keeping it simple. These limitations force you to focus on your content
rather than twiddling with advanced layout features and failing to get any
work done.

If it's easier to do data tables that don't allow any text formatting within
them, go for it! If you need to do something harder, use another document
editor and attach it to Zim with a screenshot.
