HOWTO: Add/delete rows and columns in tables

Recommended Posts

Um, maybe I'm missing something - but is it possible to edit tables after you've created them in a note? I mean, to add and/or delete extra rows and columns etc. I can't see a way to do this, and I never remember how many I need when I first create the table? I find using tables useful for 'list' type stuff, so this is becoming a pain...

Table editing is pretty limited at the moment you can add another row by hitting the tab key when you are in the furthers right of your columns.

So you can, I never spotted that, thanks! But yes, the editing is a bit limited. Still, with Premium I guess I can now punt in Excel (or Word) docs and just edit those instead... which seems to work rather well!

I didn't see this earlier but i basically restarted this topic. It appears the editing remains very basic and limited, and since this was started in August, it also must not be a priority. Though I am making a push that at least some more editing choices be made available, or what's the point?

I know this is an ancient thread.  In 2014 to delete a row or column click in a table box. Then righ click and slide down to table....

Recovert, are you sure that you can add a row with a right click on a Mac ?  I am running Mavericks and the context menu I get with a right click doesn't have any table options.

Yes, you can right click to delete a row, once your cursor is in a row. But it's really, really archaic to delete a column or row. You can't select and delete multiple rows. You have to click and shuffle through to a sub-menu for each and every row/column you want deleted. Pretty lame, really.

 

Even just a keyboard shortcut for add or delete rows columns would be huge help. The only keyboard shortcut for tables right now is for new table, which seems the least useful possible thing to have.

+1: some usability please!  How about some cursor context specific actions in the button bar?  When you drop an image into a table cell and then try to get to the "Table" context menu, it doesn't even show up.  You have to add some sort of whitespace to the cell to be able to click and find "Table".

Metrodon,

 

I tried using the TAB key in the furthest right-hand row. It doesn't work. Nothing seems to work as of 01/06/2015. Without editing features this is really a worthless feature.

On  Mac:

 

Right-click inside any box in the table, then scroll down to 'Tables' - all of the  options are there (add/delete row/column above/below, right/left).

I think this is the Mac area of the Evernote discussions. At the top of this page, just in front of "How to" you will see a rectangle with the word "Mac". I'm sure there are other, similar discussions for Windows machines.

You can add columns/rows by right-clicking on the table and selecting the "Tables >" submenu.
