I can't find the option to insert a table in the web editing page. Is it hidden somewhere?
Thanks,
Dale

Not available at this time from the edit toolbar. But, I am off to test a hack. Back soon.

I tested three ways of inserting tables into a note:
http://www.evernote.... ... 60b3f6463d

1. Paste raw html. Fails. Html is stored as protected text.
2. Copy rendered table from a page. Works. But no convenient way to edit table size in web client.
3. Edit note in Windows client. By far the easiest and best way to add a table to a note.

Thanks. It's seems the second way is the one I'm looking for. Can I know exactly how you make a rendered table in another page and copy it?

Easiest way is to create appropriately sized tables in a note as in the example note I shared.

and copy it?

To copy a table.
- Select the table from a browser page, e.g. the shared note in my prior post.
- Copy it
- Paste it into the target note while in edit mode.

If you are comfortable working with html directly you can also use the 3rd party ENML Editor web app to directly create or edit a table. Warning, this will work, but you really need to know what you are doing before using the tool.

Thanks a lot.
I tried to copy your table to my note. But there is no border in my note. So it's hard to say it is a table.
ENML Editor is great! That may be the most easy way at the moment. Though I'm not familiar with HTML, I can learn some about table quickly.
BTW, why Evernote can not implement such kind of tools? Is there any tech difficulties?

Thanks,

Probably at some time, but, nothing advertised as a near term priority for Evernote development.

I want tables too, don't worry, Evernote is making it happen.

You could copy a table in excel or work directly into Evernote Web, or e-mail the tables.

+1 on tables in the web interface

I have to create all my tables on the client then update them on the web, it's a nuisance.

Also, hyperlink buttons would be awesome!

Just recently found a browser plugin for Chrome & Firefox called Markdown Here  (markdown-here.com).  It's designed allow Markdown notation to apply formats when composing email.  In addition to the usual headers, bold/italics, links, and more, it will do tables in a browswer rich text dialog.  Most functions work in the EN web editor.  As you can see in this note I created and share here, there is a table toward the bottom.  And an added plus, it will format/highlight code in many different languages.  (I've seen multiple requests to handle code snippets in the forums.  I in fact do this from time to time.)

Caveats:  
* I had to use ctrl-enter a few times to create a place for the markdown.
* After you hit `done` you likely won't be able to edit it.

 

Hope this is useful!

Jim
