Move rows and columns in a table with buttons

Post by dcramer » Thu Mar 24, 2011 12:56 am

Hi there,
One feature that seems to be missing from Oxygen's cals and html table support are buttons to move rows up and down and columns left and right. I know spans would be a problem, but I assume the script would just refuse to move the row if it hits a span.

Is there already a convenience feature around this that I'm missing?

Thanks,
David

Hi David,

We've had previous requests for this. Definitely a feature worth implementing for working with tables.
For now it is scheduled for the next major version of Oxygen (probably at the beginning of the next year).
We'll update this post when this gets implemented.

As for moving rows you could select the entire row from the Outline and then drag and drop either in the Outline or drag the selected content in the Author page.

Regards,
Radu

Ok, glad it's on the roadmap.

A similar feature would be an easy way to move list item like things (in DocBook listitems, steps, varlistentrys, members, etc) up and down.

Thanks,
David

Hi David,

Actually we discussed such a feature in our meeting this morning :)
I added an improvement request for this and we'll update this post when it becomes available.

Hi David,

We released Oxygen 15.0 a couple of days ago and it should have special actions for Move Up/Down included.
