Within writer, I'm hoping to delete an empty table. When I select the table in the 'Navigator' and attempt to delete it (right-click -> Table -> Delete), calc responds with 'The structure of a linked table cannot be modified'. Is there a "secret" way to simply remove a troublesome table?

I ended up giving the table a unique name, saving the document as a flat XML (fodt) file and then deleting the table element and the associated style elements. This hardly seems ideal as a solution (i.e., I'm still wondering if I'm missing something that would have allowed me to simply delete the element using the UI).

Can you upload somewhere a sample document so that we can analyse the pecularities of it?

I apologize for not catching your comment sooner. I appreciate your willingness to have evaluated the document. Unfortunately, that document came and went some time ago and is no longer "at my fingertips" so to speak...

No luck, but still interested in case you find a copy
