A few weird Issues/Bugs?

New to Glideapp.
I have a few issues I encounter regularly.
Using Glideapp tables and not Google sheets

  1. When I add a new column it is added to the table automatically with the name ‘New Column A’. I then cannot edit it or do anything with it. Even cannot delete?! After refresh, the column is removed.
  2. Sometimes the data in tables cannot be seen. For example, I have 3 rows in the table and 5 columns. In the first 3 columns, I will see the data and not in the other 5.
  3. After I add a new column, I cannot type into it. I can easily type in other pre-existing columns, but not to the new ones.


This is a known issue and a reported bug.

Yes, I’ve also noticed this. It’s one of the quirks of the GDE. The data is usually there, but not visible. One thing I have found is that if you re-arrange the columns, the data will magically appear. Go figure :man_shrugging:

I think this is related to the first issue. Refer to the bug thread that I linked to for potential workarounds.

Thanks a lot for the info @Darren_Murphy
This is very sad and makes it impossible to work with Glideapp. :frowning:
Any workarounds? Would it be better to work with Google sheets rather than Glideapp tables? What are your recommendations?


Yes, I agree it’s annoying and frustrating. I spend several hours a day working with Glide, so I know what it’s like. I have found that it comes and goes. Sometimes it’ll be fine for a while, and then out of the blue it just starts happening. I usually grin and bear it, and try and power through. One thing to note is that I believe it doesn’t matter if you’re working with Glide tables, or sheet based tables - the issue affects both.

Glide is a constantly evolving and improving platform. The Glide team are developing and releasing new features at breakneck speed. Yes, it has its quirks and bugs and issues like this can be annoying. But on balance it’s still a great platform. I’m sure these things will be sorted out sooner rather than later.

Read the comments in the other thread.
Seems like it is bad and workarounds are not 100% working. :worried:

Hope this will be fixed soon.
Anyone from Google read this?

I doubt it.

If you mean glide team, then they sure will.

Update - see below!

Fixes for apparently empty data should release tomorrow.



@david Do you ever stop working? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Ya, Glide. My bad :relaxed:

No worries, easy to get confused.

Keep going with glide, you will be glad you did.

It’s a wonderful platform.

The community and team behind glide are simply the best…

Wishing you well with your app(s)

The community is great so far. Very responsive and helping.
The Glideapp platform, unfortunately, is unusable at this stage.
Will wait for fixes/workarounds and see if I can proceed.

I don’t think the evidence would support that assertion, as plenty of us are still banging out apps on a daily basis. So something must be working… :wink:


Unusable for me :face_with_monocle:
I cannot invest hours of refreshing/moving between tabs/creating and deleting/finding workarounds/etc. etc. for a function that requires 1 minute of development.

I am still in the stage of discovering the platform and its capabilities. But found it very frustrating until now and impossible to work with for very simple use cases.

As said I will wait for updates/fixes.
