    Table behaviour in TinyMCE Umbraco v 4.0.1

    Creating a 3 column table and not putting any values in the first column before first save. All empty cells disappear. Lost a whole column + 3 last cells in third column. Can insert new column, but no easy way to insert new cells in other places.

    Solved this by putting a space in each cell. But it's irritating when you know how many rows/columns you need but you don't have all the data in place on first save.
    And it didn't work like this in previous version.

    Anyone know som config or setup trick to avoid the problem?

    Just had the same problem. To solve it:

    1. Open config/tinyMceConfig.config
    2. In <validElements> find -td.
    3. Change -td to #td.

    The minus tells tinyMCE to remove empty tags and the hash sign tells it to put a space in there instead.
