Simple Textual Formatting Abilities

I have to do purely textual, non-graphic reports as part of a dashboard fairly often, usually P&L type statements, and it's not one of Tableau's strengths.  I think some really minor changes would make a big difference.

 

I would like to see:

1.  Ability to individually size columns instead of all columns resizing. 

2.  Ability to hide individual columns in display.  If you calculate year over year differences with a table calculation, the earliest year will always have a blank column.  Sometimes I need the YoY calculation on maybe six fields.  Combine six blank columns with not being able to individually size columns, and you end up with a whole screen's worth of empty space. 

3.  Ability to use a font size smaller than 8.
