  • table_cleaner_delimiters_white_spaces - The number of whitespaces between the text of a cell and the delimiters - default: 1
  • table_import_separator - The separator inserted when formatting a table imported - default: "|"
  • table_import_sorround_with_separator - Append a separator at the beginning and the end of each line when importing a table - default: true

How it works
