At times when you paste a web page on an odt document, all kinds of empty tables artefacts appear. I would like to get rid of all of them at once. I am OK with opening the the text XML source document and parse, remove all empty tables, but I think there should be an option to so such a thing from within libreoffice's GUI. lbrtchx
