Add row

Post by raymond » Sat Aug 31, 2019 4:38 pm

In the Table palette there is a gear icon. When pressing on it, a menu opened, and one can have the possibility to add a row.
In former versions of Mellel 'add a row' command starts with one row and then second click added two rows and then 4 rows.
I wish this possibility will be added as well.

I had to add 20 rows to and existing table, so I had to repeat this action twenty times. So if there is a way to do it now, it is well, but it would be good to have this option as well.

Raymond, I also posted a query about this problem.

Adding just one row at a time really slows me down.

The only option that does work is adding multiple rows at the end of a table which is no solution for large tables.

Adding rows to a table has indeed become a user interface catastrophe in my opinion. Who thought that making users go through several steps to add a row and repeat it every single time was good user interface design? Given the widespread use of tables in documents, there should a least then be a menu for tables. Users should not have to go through four steps (open palette, click on tables, click on gear, click on add a row), or at least two to simply add a row to a table. Unless I am mistaken, since there is no menu for tables, you can't even add a shortcut for this.

Note that you can right-click a table to access all the table commands in a context menu.
