Although not relevant to the original poster's situation, I would like to see a columns tab under the table dialogue that lists the column widths where you can type in the width of each column.

It's there: Table | Table Properties... | Columns | Column width (or right-click | Table... | Columns | Column width). (Yes: you can type in those boxes.)

I frequently have to tweak tables by stealing width from one column to give to another spaced a number of columns away and without changing table width or other column widths. It is quite cumbersome at present. Possibly I am manipulating columns incorrectly and this can already be achieved easily enough.

I suspect it can. I think it is easier if you change column widths from left to right, as consequential changes work that way too. If - as you say - you need make compensatory changes to columns spaced a number of columns apart, one trick would be temporarily to tick "Adapt table width": that way, no consequential changes occur and you can go straight to the distant column and change that. You can remove the tick from "Adapt table width" afterwards if desired, of course.

I trust this helps.
