"Show Table" & "Show Table Format" does not work (BUG?)

Recommended Posts

I just created my first table and am trying to format it. I select my table, and when I click on the visible buttons for "Show Table" or "Show Table Format", absolutely nothing happens. When I go to the table menu and select either "Show Table" or "Show Table Format", absolutely nothing happens. I am not able to format my table.

The Table button should open the Table studio panel, and the Table Formats button should open the Table Formats studio panel.

If you already have those panels docked in your studio, all that would happen is that the studio panel would give the specified panel the focus. That is not necessarily a very visible action.

If you don't have them installed in your studio, then you would get a more visible effect, of the studio panel popping up in a new floating studio panel.

Of course, neither of those will work if you've hidden the Studio. So, if you've hidden the Studio, try View > Studio > Hide Studio again, to unhide it. (Or Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + H, depending on whether you're using Windows or Mac.)

If that doesn't explain what you're seeing, try View > Studio > Table or View > Studio > Table Formats. Do those work? If not, you might try View > Studio > Reset Studio and see if that helps.

Hi Walt. Thanks for your help. I was finally able to show the tables. The issue was that I was in full-screen mode and the windows were popping up underneath or other widows that I did not see. I've figured it out. Much appreciated!
