Re: Links and markup in table doesn't work


Unfortunately for you, I think this is working as designed. Zim's
current table implementation is designed as a 2D array of PLAIN-TEXT
cells. The data is fed into a GTK table-rendering widget that doesn't
know anything about wiki syntax. For now you'll just have to do your
best with plain text.

There are some alternative table suggestions in the wiki[1]. Not sure if
it's in there, but you might also consider storing your table with
complex formatting, in a spreadsheet file (Gnumeric, LibreOffice Calc,
etc.) and ATTACH it to a Zim page.
