Hi,

I'm new here. First of all, I'd like to thank the whole team here for the terrific work!
I've been long looking for a tool like this for a long time. I was so desperate that I entertained the idea of writing my own lightweight markup language. But never would I have achieved anything close to what you guys have created!
Until a month ago, I didn't use emacs for more than quick tasks, like commit messages in the command line. Now I spend more time in emacs than any other program. Org-mode is an absolute KILLER APP! And yes, Im spreading the word. Several of my colleagues and friends have started using org-mode now and Carsten Dominik's book proofs to be a nice and nerdy present. 

Here is a question I have:
	I like to use visual-line-mode when writing text in emacs. However for long org-mode tables, the automatic line wrap becomes very ugly, to the point where the table is almost unreadable. 
Is there a way to have visual-line-mode on, but deactivated for tables, so that you would have to scroll to the side to read the full table?

best
Frieder

Thanks for the nice words and for spreading the world :)

The next release comes with 128 person to thank.  
That tells certainly a lot.

Sadly enough, I don't know of any fix for this at the moment.

I second the desire for such a feature. Unfortunately, I do not have
enough knowledge to figure out how to implement it.
