QXP 2017 - Table cell distribution

Postby MarkyBoy » 31 Jan 2018, 11:08

Finally upgraded from 9.5(!) to 2017... I notice that the old 'Modify' box is no longer available (I think removed in version 10?) Anyway, one really useful tool I use all the time was using the modify box to distribute columns or rows in a table evenly... So you make a table and you want to make the four final columns say all the same width, you used to select them, right click to modify and then choose distribute columns evenly - Quark then distributed the four columns evenly in the space available in the table - does anyone know where this command is in QXP 2017

Hi Marky,

oops, it seems like we missed porting this to Cocoa. And so far nobody ever complained.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, I will have a chat with the team (and maybe I am just not seeing it either :? ).

Thanks
Matthias
Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?

Hi Matthias

Actually, with 'fresh eyes' this morning, I have found it!! It is a tiny icon in the 'Home' palette next to the box colour - I found it by accident! :-)

Thanks for the reply and I am missing your Webinars! :-)

Hi Marky,

ah, yes, you are right. Maybe YOU should create a webinar? ;-)

Thanks
Matthias
