Allow users to draw tables and columns in form processing model (similar to drawing fields)

The present table functionality in the form processing model doesn't allow a user to correct the suggested tables and columns resulting in information being missed - for instance in this case the column headers and the top row values don't get extracted:

And in this case the column headers are recognised, but the 'totals' row isn't needed and can't be excluded:

Allowing a user to correct the table and column sizes would help a lot!

Thank you @JoeF-MSFT  that is great. Looking at your blog it shows you can define tables on a cell by cell base. However, if you already have a proper table in the content of your file (see my screenshots above) can you draw rows and or columns to define a range of values?

Hi @HarmVane, thanks for asking.

 

For existing models you can choose to keep the previous tagging experience or switch to the new cell by cell tagging experience. 

 

In the summer we will release an updated UI that will let you tag each row and column with a grid instead of going cell by cell.

Thank you @JoeF-MSFT  for the quick response and for the update. Given it isn't possible yet to draw grids for rows and columns would you mind keeping this idea open until the summer? Thanks!
