table function?

Is there a way to line up text perfectly in a comment? Basically a table without table borders.

if this could be implemented it would make organizing logs very easy. especially if i decide to log my food and macro intake.

sure i could use excel and then post a screenshot, but it's a lot easier to have the format done just once in a post and then quote it and edit the numbers for the next post

you mean like this? http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Table

unfortunately we're still using SMF, otherwise i'd just add a feature to this thing.. (some day :( ). if that table is ok, we can write a quick script to take a paste from excel and convert it into that table format. if you want me to do that let me know, just send me an example paste. Might need to paste it as csv though.. if copying from excel results in it pasting tabs/csv, then we can easily convert that into the bbcode table format.

Hm yea that link works! Looking at all those tags makes me realize it'll be pretty cumbersome to use though. Sometimes I do more sets on an exercise so copying the same table isn't enough. I may have to edit and it'll get annoying.

Now if the tab key worked... that would pretty much solve everything neatly. Make it like a 5 space tab or something. Boom everything aligns.



i'll paste an excel table though when im not too lazy  :huh:

ya just paste it directly so I can check it out.. wrap it in [ code ] [ /code ] bbcode. that usually preserves everything properly.

Edit: Turns out it came out a little screwed up. But I may experiment with wrapping my log in [/code] instead of in [/quote]. It may be annoying though since I have to scroll through the code. Also the font is ugly lol.


Here's a screenshot of the excel table:
