Steps to reproduce
(I have the Advanced Tables community plugin installed, all plugins are up-to-date. I also tested the same scenario in the sandbox vault, free of any plugins.)
Create a table, but with only a single column, for example:
| Categories |
| ----------- |
| General Purpose |
| ... |
Live preview should detect the creation of a table, and format it as such.
Table displays as plain text. (Read mode displays it correctly, thankfully.)
(Image above showcasing the issue, N.B. how a two-column table is displayed correctly.)
Windows 10, Up-to-date.

Still an issue for me on Obsidian Version 0.15.9 on MacOS Monterey.
Still an issue on v1.0.3 on Linux. Can I help troubleshoot somehow?
This is sadly still an issue on 1.1.15 … With no workaround available, this feels like it should have a higher priority …
Still an issue in 1.3.5; single column tables will not show in edit mode, only “reading” view

In Windows 11.
1.3.7 as well. It’s a small thing, but it does make it harder to use Obsidian for taking notes, especially with database work. Please see below for a screen shot.
Agreed. Single column tables are perfectly valid and have multiple uses for notes and for display purposes. Specifically when a bullet list won’t work or doesn’t make sense.
I work around by adding an empty column before (or after) that single column so it becomes 2 column table. It’s not exactly what I want but kinda acceptable to me.
