    I wondering if I've missed something, but how does one add headers to a table in the kendo Editor? 

    Seems like such a basic requirement in order to produce acceptable HTML.

    At the moment if I manually add the html <table><thead><th>Some header</th></thead><table> the editor shows it, but it seems that the add row tool throws an exception... And I cant see any option in the table wizard to add headers.

    If I had to add a tool to toggle/insert a header row are there any examples I could follow?

    As an aside this competing editor has very nice popup table tools, one of which is adding a header row, merge cells, etc:

    Hello Jon,

    The Table Wizard does not support table headers at the moment. Plus, any internal command does not consider managing th elements as well. Such a functionality has never been requested and put as a demand for the Kendo Editor. You can post a feature request here: That way other developers will be able to vote for the feature request and properly highlight the demand for such feature in the Kendo Editor.
