Dear orgmoders

I was wondering if I can get a new line inside the cell of a table in
Orgmode to be rendered as new paragraph or as a list.

Best!

Hi Eric

As far as I know a table is what I want and what I need.  I guess maybe
there can be something build without a table but finally I need a
table/tsv.

This is what I am working with, it's full of tables:
https://oeg-upm.github.io/transmodel-cq/

Some of them need to have more than a paragraph, sometimes two,
sometimes a list of items...

There does not seem to be a beautiful approach, but you can do this:

#+attr_latex:  :align |l|l|
#+caption: caption
| Description                        | properties

|
|------------------------------------+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Some variable as a value of 0 or 1 | @@latex:
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.4\textwidth}\begin{itemize} \item 0 is true \item 1
is false\end{itemize}\end{minipage}@@ |
|------------------------------------+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The way the website you referenced is organized, it looks like you want a
table, but I guess those tables are generated right? If so, what are they
generated from? The majority of the entries look like single
sentence/paragraphs, with only a few that look like there are items. Maybe
it isn't too bad to just write those in sentence form.

Hi,

Hitting M-RET in a table's cell will open a new cell below and allow
you to use "-" for a list item, but this list item won't be recognized
as such when exporting.  We cannot support list items within tables
for export, this would be too complex and possibly confusing.
