Brief demo of tabbed table rendering options

I made a very brief demo (53 seconds!) to show two different ways tabbed tables could be rendered by the Midas LSX or AppsFidelity. While your users may not add tabbed tables to rich text, it is quite likely your developers have added them to forms, so when you want a snapshot of a document, or want to display it on the web or in a mobile app as a rendered document, or email the document, the tabbed tables must be handled.
Try forwarding a document with a tabbed table either in the form or in the rich text itself, and you will get a "flattened" version where every row is shown. Depending on whether your client or server handles the MIME, the tabs may be lost completely or added to a separate row. With the Midas Exports engine, you can get a similar, but more well-rendered version of this "flattened" look. That is the default, and is certainly preferred for email or printing.
