Publish a Play Document Without Links to the Source Tables

Hidinging or disabling the source table hyperlink in published documents which is meant only for Viewing and Playing with data could solve so many issues and open the doors for so many different use cases.

A couple of years after the first time I posted a suggestion about this is still a dealbreaker for so many use cases of Coda.

Please fix this already.

One of the particular reasons why this is blocking many use cases is because the source tables are usually just as backend data while views are those that present the information to the users. Often using this structure means that we have tables in hidden pages BUT with this link neither the tables, nor the pages are hidden any more, leaving all data exposed to whoever wants to reach it in a published document.

Published documents with Edit access should also keep the hidden sections hidden for most user types but let’s start with this supposedly simpler case.
