Hi,

it would be nice if doclifter would support tables, for openslide-show-properties.1 it converts:

..TS
allbox, tab(^); ll.
 \fBTag\fR^\fBDescription\fR
 ImageDescription^Stores some important key-value pairs, see below
 Software^Starts with \*(lqMedScan\*(rq
 XResolution, YResolution^T{
Seems to store microns-per-pixel (MPP), which may or may not take into
account the correct objective power. Note that this is inverted from standard
TIFF, which stores pixels-per-unit, not units-per-pixel.
T}
..TE

Same issue with doclifter from testing. My old man page is still available from:

Thanks much

Can you try the version in testing currently, and see if it works
better?  (That version is 2.7-1.)

If it is not better, could you send a sample man page (or point to one
available in Debian)?
