Support code blocks in table cells

Support code blocks in table cells

When writing design docs in Paper, it's sometimes really helpful to show two code snippets side by side to compare and contrast.

I normally use a 2x1 table to format text side-by-side, and having support for the triple tick code blocks inside of a table cell would be really nice.

Hey Lori! How much support are you thinking?

I completely agree! This diff style feature would come in handy and increase readability of code snippets. Tables are quite clunky to work with and frustrating to format. It would be great if you made this happen!

Going to chime in and say that we use Paper extensively for collaborative technical documentation and a lot of our information is organized into tables. Not having code block formatting in the cells is quite frustrating because it reduces the scanability of the content.
