Can't insert tables in footnotes

like word, Can Writer have tables in footnotes? i can’t insert them there.!

Footnotes and tables have a history of not playing well together. Until quite recently (v4.1.5-v4.2.0) LO could not open a Word document containing a table in a footnote (fdo#71749) and would crash if any attempt was made to paste a table into a footnote (fdo#71892). The ODF v1.2 specification appears to support a table (<table:table> element) being placed in a footnote (<text:note-body> element), which makes sense as this is required for interoperability with OOXML, but it does not appear possible at present.

Do you want to have a table in the “footnotes” or “footer area”?

In the “footnotes” it is not possible. Greyed out. To me this makes sense because the a footnote is a additional comment by the author of a document. If something like a table is required it should be used in the main text.

In the footer area just click into the footer area > Insert > table

Thanks Ros,
Mostly I have to work with RTL text, and sometimes we have poetry in footnotes, and 95% of RTL poetry is in full justified mode, with two verses in a row. In that case, i need two styles in one line, a different style for each verse. For this, i use tables, and i just can’t…
