Post subject:  How to convert table to tab-delimited text

I know one can convert tab-delimited text into a table, but is it possible to convert a table into tab-delimited text? It seems to be possible in MS Word, but can it be done with Nisus?

Use the command "Copy Table Text" from the "Table" menu.
There are however obvious limitations to the operation, since table cells can contain multiple paragraphs. And even when each cell has only a single paragraph a table row can have multiple paragraph styles, while a single tab delimited paragraph can only have one.

This is helpful to know. However, it means then pasting the copied text somewhere. I was looking rather for a way to convert the table itself into tab-delimited text, and I have since discovered that it is easy to do with LibreOffice.

Click somewhere before the table and run the macro. This is exactly what LibreOffice does.

Code:
# Convert a table into tab-delimited text

Select Next Table
Copy Table Text
Delete
Paste
