I am using ckeditor for drupal (ver. 3.6.3), along with our own sub-theme of the Marinelli theme on Drupal 7. We are switching from D6, and I have noticed that in both D6 and D7, the ability to insert a table and be able to modify the table border using a wysiwyg editor seems impossible.
I have spent several days searching, and have tried combining ckeditor with wysiwyg module/api. In addition, I have tried installing the CCK table field module, and finally tried switching themes (the only one that seems to work is stark 7.17, and even that one does not allow for inner borders to be set). I know I can modify the css via the suggestion at http://drupal.org/node/1212204, but this is a static setup. If the end user wants to switch to no border, or change the border width, it is impossible via the wysiwyg editor.
I feel I must be missing something - is it truly this difficult to allow a user to insert and format a table via any of the wysiwyg edtors in drupal? Any help would be appreciated.
