Just switched over to the new editor and found out there is no support for indenting text in a table cell.
Am I missing something here - tables are a basic structuring tool and indenting one of the most basic ways of formatting content. Is there some way to achieve this in the new editor?
Thank you for reporting this to us. There's an existing bug for the behavior below, which I can see you've now discovered:
The workaround is to add text and then go back to the start of the text to indent it. Can you confirm that you've tested this and is it working for you?
You're right; I tried testing the work around in the older editing experience and it only works there, but not even with the TAB button does it indent in cells in the new experience.
I found that there are plans to bring back indentation to the new editor in the form of this feature request:
As for a workaround for the new editor, the only way I was able to get text to indent was by using the SPACE key. It's not ideal, but it will enable you to indent your text until it's available in the new editor.
Let me know if you have any trouble.
I have the same need: I have text within a table box that I need to indent. Outside of the table I would just press TAB and the text would be indented. Inside a table cell pressing TAB moves me to the next cell.
