Actually I started out using 2C editing for this, but it came constantly in my way, so currently what I am doing is: (1) use a tab character to separate the two columns and (2) set the tab-width to 30 (in most cases), so that most of the columns are nicely separated. This works very well for editing in Emacs. However, at the moment I do not have an easy way to export this to ODT as it s. Now I have given further thought to this, maybe the following will work: (1) consecutive lines with 1 or more <tab> characters and the *same* number of such <tab>s will be considered as a table and the exporter will work with this as if it were a org-table. (Note that I usually only have two columns and as you said, with more columns one is probably better off using proper tables) (2) This option is switched on or off through a variable or a OPTION line in the header of the file. (3) as I mentioned earlier, it would be good to be also able to globally set the proportions (maybe this can already be done with column properties?) All the best, Christian -- Christian Wittern, Kyoto
