I’m also +1 on tables - but for a slightly different purpose:
I’d like tables with simple spreadsheet functionality. I’ve always thought this was one of the most overlooked features of Pages!
I want to use tables for simple budgets, list of costs etc. It is SO frustrating putting figures in a table and then having to use a calculator before typing in the total! And then, you edit one figure and have to get the calculator out again.
I don’t think I’d particularly care if the table could be exporting to csv etc, so long as I could select the cells and copy and paste into a real spreadsheet.
This is an application for notes, so I dont see the need for anything beyond the basic functions, I’d just want to jot down my initial ideas of costs or whatever - to do some ‘back of envelope’ calculations.
