Follow-up Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I found that TableTools2 suddenly had disappeared.
Turns out that in "synchronizing extensions" between two machines, I had Book Text Mark" extension enabled.
Apparently there is an incompaibility with TT2 not showing up in the context menu any more.
Since I don't need to bookmark "a text within a long page" too often,I disabled BTM and ... TT2 is back.
Hmm, I tried installing BTM and it seemed fine. TT2 still showed up in context menu. I wonder if some other addon's actually causing BTM disabling TT2 in context menu?
VERY useful add-on, THANK YOU Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It doesn't do "a lot" but does right what it needs to do.
Well, my only "anoyance" is when the web presents something "as if it were a table" and the right-click doesn't show TT2
But ... those times I asked the "view source", I noticed these tables weren't coded as "table" but as a bunch of <div> html.
Maybe that is modern html for tables, but it would not sort or filter.
On "java blocks" it seems to ... well, they are blocks, aren't they? As in blocking.
i guess TableTools isn't meant to do that kind of extras.
Maybe I 'll learn to use the "being not there" of TT2 in the context menu as a sign that I'm looking at an "advanced page".
But it is VERY nice on real table stuff, and there is still plenty of that on the web.
Thank you for a GOOD tool
Thanks for your review! Yes, TT2 icon only shows up for real tables, not those arbitrary/fake tables made by <div>. Those tables are not easy to reliably analyze and operate on, so TT2 does not try to do that. Sometimes some web designers mix <div> with real HTML table and if they don't do it right and fail to retain proper HTML table structure, it could mess up TT2's operations too. It's unfortunately beyond TT2's control and scope.
