Table Properties - two issues with suggestions

Table Properties - two issues with suggestions

0 Kudos

When typing text into a Table on Canvas, the Table Properties Pop-Up Menu blocks the top row of text in the table so that I can't see what I am typing. I've gotten around it by typing blind, then saving my work to see if there were any typos. I cannot find a way to disable/minimize this menu, but it needs a button to do this.

Also, while working in a table, there are options for aligning text left/center/right, but no options for aligning text top/middle/bottom. Because the default setting is set for the middle, this means that the different columns do not look "aligned" with each other unless I add extra lines below in the cell with less text. This doesn't even always align it 100% correctly. I'm uploading one screenshot showing an example table with misaligned content (no extra lines added), and a second screenshot of a table that I could NOT get to align perfectly even with adding extra lines below the shorter cells. (I do realize that there is a way to do this using the HTML editor, but this should be a standard feature on the regular editor.)
