When I use checkboxes in an Editable Table, all checkboxes appear pre-checked for a new row. This is counterintuitive. HTML has a "checked" option, but EditTablePlugin does not. Nothing should be checked on a new row unless I give a starting value (not currently possible).

%EDITTABLE{ format="| radio, 1, , High, Med, Low | select, 2, , P1, P2, P3, P4 | checkbox, 1, All, Eggs, Toast, Potatoes | text, 20 | text, 20 |" }%
| *Type* | *Priority:* | *Choice* | *A* | *B* |

Type Priority: Choice A B

Agree. Voting +1 for this. It's always been annoying, especially if you have a lot of checkboxes. Default should be off, but it would be good to set the default per table, eg checkboxdefault="off" or similar.

I agree, but the fix is difficult due to the plugin code. Confirming.

Agree. Voting +1 for this! It's been annoying. Why you stop working on this?

The code in EditTablePlugin has become very difficult to maintain, and we have replaced this plugin by default with the new EditRowPlugin. It has some benefits beyond table editing. It can edit individual cells or rows, and can do client side sorting. Unless a volunteer comes along who is willing to try to fix the old bugs, this will probably go unresolved. Please consider using the EditRowPlugin.
