Description

CKEditor has some problem with delete cells in tables. After delete any cell, table layout is incorrect. In my opinion we should remove option 'delete cells' (many editors working like that example Excel - only allow to remove row or column, no single cell) or after this action do colspan or rowspan to keep table layout stable.

Maybe we could make a setting, whether to simply remove the cell or merge it with it's sibling (using colspan).

The current behavior reflects the "default" behavior in MS Word (it offers also other options though). Making it configurable would just helping making our code bigger.

We could consider a dialog based solution for it (just like MS Word). In that case we would move the code to the dialog, helping also to make our core code smaller.

In any case, there is no priority for it because, as said, that's the standard MS Word behavior and most users are ok with it (people can always undo things).

It's ok to leave the insert/delete cell AS IS, as we have "merge/split cell" that user could rely on to handle such a situation, while we should work on fixing insert/delete spanning row/column at #6568.

If

In any case, there is no priority for it because, as said, that's the standard MS Word behavior and most users are ok with it (people can always undo things).

then this issue can be treated as low priority new feature and not a bug.
