Provide an option to "lock" column types

There have been numerous occasions where I explicitly set a column type for a table and entries will automatically trigger a column type change, and I have to change it back manually every time. Granted, this only appears to be the case for tables that are empty, but the documents I work with have tables cleared regularly, so this is a problem that I run into more often than Iā€™d like.

Same thing here.
I need the column to be text value regardless of me typing in numbers.
If I type in ā€œ+385ā€ it will get convert the column type to numbers and get rid of the ā€œ+ā€ for some reason.
