If you associate .txt files with Zim, in Windows Explorer, then you can make hyperlinks in your spreadsheet attachments which open Zim pages.

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.

According to the manual, links should work. If entered, the link text is actually colored, but CTRL + left click opens the table toolbar. Using the 'open cell content' in the context menu doesn't do anything. I thought it used to work, but I am not certain. In any case, this seems to be a bug, or the manual need to be adapted. I have filed a bug report on this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bug/1536906. If you are experiencing this bug, please go to that page and click on 'this bug affects you'.

There are some alternative table suggestions in the wiki <https://github.com/jaap-karssenberg/zim-wiki/wiki>. 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.

I'm very happy when I read in Zim Help, that links and common format markup works in table cells in the new Table Editor plugin. Unfortunately this day I realised it doesn't work definitely. Links displaying as links, but if I used right-click on the selected line, Open cell in content link doesn't do anything. (Picture-1)

If I write something after a link in cell, the content doesn't show. Picture-2 shows what is the content of the cell with link from Picture-1.

How can I fix it? There any idea what happens?

Windows 10 x64, Zim 0.65. Thanks for any comment!
