Use condition tags on table columns AND have the first row be tagged as <thead>

I've created a table where the first row is to be a repeating header row using the <thead> tag. I have also applied condition tags to the first two columns of the same table, to use for internal audience only.

 

Unfortunately, the two things do not play well together. Although the header row is repeated, it does not remove/hide/exclude the first two cells of the row (the ones that should be excluded by the condition tags. The remaining rows of the table are properly reduced to just the one column.

 

Any ideas of how I can stop this override?

Adobe have acknowledged this is a bug and they hope to fix it in the next update. I don't have a date for that.

In 2022.3 I created a simple three column table with the first row set as a header row. Tagging out the first column left it in the heading and moved the contents of columns 2 and 3 across leaving column 3 blank.

Sorry, folks, I should know better!

RH 2022.3.93, Windows 10, and I'm atempting to produce a PDF output at this time. I will need Frameless output in the near future.

 

I had reported this as a bug back in the RH2019 (new UI) version, and was told it was fixed in RH2022. I am late joining the 2022 realm for a couple reasons, but I did have the exclusion working properly (the exclusion of entire columns based on audience) until I remembered that I needed to repeat the the header row on each page. When I inserted the <thead> tags is when I discovered the apparent conflict between the row tags and the ability to exclude the columns.

 

I've attached screenshots of the RH WYSYWIG editor view of the content with and without the <thead> tags, and the PDF output of the content with the <thead> tag used (which is different from the WYSYWIG editor rendering).
