First off, I’m familiar with the thread here Simple Tables with Format Options - #6 by Donald_Sipe regarding “simple” tables in Coda. And I’m also aware that despite having a LOT of votes from the community, it doesn’t seem to be getting any attention from the devs, at least yet.
So, as a temporary workaround, I can obviously just use the “advanced” tables for “simple” purposes. This presents two problems for me right now though. One, is that titles have to be unique still. If I’m going to be stuck having to have a lot of one-off tables around that aren’t used for relationships, there’s a good chance that I’m eventually going to run into a title collision. I get that titles are supposed to be unique to ease use in relations, but again, if this is a one-off table then I just want to be able to title it whatever I want and use it.
Second, is there some way to “hide” a table from showing up in the list for relations and such? Again, if I’m going to end up having a load of one-off tables cluttering up the place, then when I go to actually make a relation column, I’m going to have a lot of “junk” tables in the list that I have to sift through to find the one I actually want.
Something to solve one or both of these would at least make the lack of “simple” tables a bit easier to deal with. I’m just surprised that they still aren’t a thing. Seems like loads of people, including devs at Coda would be missing the ability to just make a table without it having to be a full “fancy” table.
