Table view: 'grey out' fields that aren't applicable

I regularly work on my project plan in table view. I'll go through my plan often to make sure that all tasks have start/due dates and other details filled in. I often get thrown by blank fields looking like gaps (e.g. folders within my plan cannot have start/due dates so those fields are empty, making it look like part of my plan hasn't been scheduled, whereas in fact those fields will always be empty.

Could it be changed so that these sorts of fields (the ones that can't be used) appear differently - greyed out for example - so that the table view is easier to work with?

This would be helpful for custom item types too! Our project has set fields that are different from some of the custom item types we are using, so we have the same issues as Juliet when viewing table view - there are a bunch of blank cells. Having these greyed out would be awesome - but even better would be for us to have an option of whether or not to have them greyed out.

Ashley Fischer great point! I wonder if it's possible to have default (for users who don't want to have to pick and choose) but also the option to change the settings where you want to be more specific?

Juliet Bowpitt this would be perfect! Most likely the fields should always be greyed out, however having the option to change that would be great for the one off situations.
