    Default Please tell me how to create a table . . . am very frustrated

    Hi all,

    I am new to Xara and think it is a tremendous program - once you find out how to use it!

    It seems not very intuitive. One of my biggest frustrations has been trying to add a table. All of the data is in a CSV file, but I cannot figure how to import it (Or copy and paste it so that it shows correctly, for that matter).

    The table is a long one, comprised of baseball stats from a league. If Xara does not allow for easy creation, is there a free third-party resource that can be used to create the table online and then copy it to the webpage?

    Thanks for the help . . .

    I feel your pain.

    This is what Xara offers (simplified):
    • Insert Table
    • Pick Table 09
    • Ignore CSV file and open your List in Excel or
    • Copy the rows of your List to the Clipboard or Google Spreadsheets
    • Back in your Table (09), use the Text Tool and click in the fist top-left cell (not the Table Caption)
    • Paste the data
    • Xara will ask (HTML Format, Unformatted text)
    • You must choose Unformatted text

    I can just about manage to get Table 09 to accept a few hundred rows with a dozen columns but any slight mistake and Xara throws a wobbly.

    For large data, I have to revert to https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...w-Table-Widget.
    For very large data, I have to link to the data so you get dragged into coding a lot more.

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.
