I downloaded 0.2 to my mac running 10.4 and texshop installation. Initially,
everything seems to work smoothly, preview and all. This is a really, really
good idea and I hope to see further development. For the most windows
centric n00b, I might suggest this tool. But, overall, I just think it needs
more features before I would recommend it. Here are some things I'd like to
see supported, in order of importance:


lines (between columns and/or rows)

ability to set up aligned columns (e.g., align rows of numbers around a
decimal point)

number formatting (scientific, significant figures, dates, etc.)

paragraph columns (w/ a friendlier interface)

automated label generation
