Here is an explanation of my idea:
I have been adding all the spells for the game system I use into RW and have discovered something I think should be added to the way the RW interface layout works. In RW everything is added per line in an article or subject, aka everything is placed vertically meaning up and down. Unless one creates a table, which does not work for everything.
For example: In 5ed D&D spell descriptions you have; Casting TIme, Range, Components, Duration, and the description. When entered into RW you have no choice but to list them like this in a vertical configuration (though in any order you prefer):
Casting Time:
Wouldn't it be better and a space saver if you could list the separate sections side by side in a horizontal configuration? For example:
Casting Time:______________ Range:___________
Components:______________ Duration:__________
Is there anything like this in the idea bin for RW?

FYI, I started this in another discussion then someone reminded me about the feature request thread. But I was also told it was pointless to post here. But I am stubborn so this is it...lol.

They were being facetious when they said it was pointless. +1 from me

Having everything visible on one screen, without needing to scroll? +1 from me too.

Maybe a special column text / tag tab?
Not a top priority for me.

+1 from me.

I could use this but not a top priority.

However, if and when it becomes possible I will probably wonder how I could ever live without that feature.

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

Using Realm Works, Worldographer (Hexographer 2), LibreOffice, Daz3D Studio, pen & paper for the realm World of Temeon and the system LEFD - both homebrewed.
