New tables appear to be limited to 100 rows

Mon Apr 06, 2015 9:41 pm

When inserting a new table using Oxygen 16, it appears that the limit is 100 rows. Any value entered above 100, Oxygen just creates a table with the last used value (which is 3 by default). Is this expected behavior? If so, this is a bit confusing to users because you can enter a value that is just ignored.

I know you can continue to add rows to the table, but you don't seem to be able to create a table with more than 100 rows initially.

Dear Matt,

Thanks for the report, I managed to reproduce the issue on my side and we'll look into it.
Possibly some limitations were imposed in order to stop somebody from accidentally blocking the application by inserting too many rows or columns in a table. But I agree that even if such limitations are imposed, the user should know about them. So we'll try to come up with a solution for this.

As a side question, do you really need to create tables which have more than 100 rows? Wow!

Regards,
Radu

Hi,

One more thing, in Oxygen 17 which we plan to release in April-May this year you will have a special action for tables called Insert rows... which will allow you to add more than one row to an existing table.

Yeah, once in a while we do. It's rare (and annoying) but it does happen. Mostly for release notes for a release with a ton of resolved issues.

Thanks Radu!

Hi,

Just to update this thread, Oxygen 17.1 should have removed this limitation.

Just tested it and 17.1 does indeed let me create a table with more than 100 rows. Thanks for the update!
