Summary0000742: Table axes (both 2d and 3d) need some protection.
DescriptionWhile it is nice to easily edit the table axes, it should not be so easy that you can accidentally edit them. These axes often stay static and don't need editing very frequently so it is not a big deal if it is a little involved.

Also, when you change the value of an axis point it is highly likely that you will want to do some conversion or some scaling to the table data itself (see issue 0000741) which in itself may provide plenty of protection.

Undo history will also make this less of a problem, but is not a real fix.

Right now it is much too easy to accidentally edit the table axes values. Suggested changes will be in notes.

One key change that would help a lot with this would be to disallow entering or exiting the axes row/column via keyboard navigation.

To elaborate on this:

Arrow keys should take you around inside either axis or the main area, but not take you between them over the borders.

IE, you should have to click or maybe tab to get between them.
