Cannot increase number of VISIBLE table-rows beyond 24

Post by paieye »

I have created a table of 38 rows (as confirmed by the Table Palette), each row containing text in Arabic, so written from right to left. However, the last row visible is 24.I had hoped that perhaps the missing rows had been carried over on to another page, but the Page-Count at the foot of the page confirms that the document consists of a single page. In the Paragraph Palette, I have clicked the down-arrow next to Grouping in the hope that this might reveal the culprit,, but the menu is greyed out. What am I doing wrong ?

WORK-AROUND: Create new table of 2 or 3 rows only, using Table-palette. Use Tab-key repeatedly to increase length of table until page-break appears. Copy and paste text from old table to new table, firmly refusing software's offer to include the old table's formatting with text being pasted.That seems to have done the trick.

Tables in Nisus Writer can have any number of rows. If you have a lot of rows in a table they will automatically flow between pages. What you described with some rows not showing is unusual.

It's hard to know from just the screenshot you posted, but I suspect that you accidentally placed the table inside your header instead of the main text. Headers and footers are limited in height, and naturally their content can't flow between pages; the content is repeated across pages. That's probably why your table was clipped.
