EditRowPlugin confuses column numbering with other plugins.

For example:
 %TABLE{initsort="1" sort="on"}%
%EDITTABLE{ header="on" format="|text|text|text|text|text|text|text|text|" headerrows="1" changerows="on" headerbg="#99CC00,  #99CC33" tableborder="4"}% 

Would not not produce the correct result, because the first column is the row of edit buttons. However, when you full edit, it looks proper, and when you preview, it looks correct. Which is confusing to some users, esp the preview part, which I filed in Item5416. Is there some way to get other plugins to ignore the first column of edit buttons, or at least play better with column specific actions. SpreadSheetPlugin is another example.

The only thing I can think of is to move the edit control to the end of the table rows. I did try putting the control inside the first cell, but that created horrendous formatting problems and would break the search anyway.

It's not a perfect solution, but if requirejs is used, then you don't get a controls column, and the column numbering should be correct.

As such I'm marking this as done.
