Complete Idiot's Guide to Glide Sheet

Hello Gliders,

Could never really decide before whether I should start my own concepts (@Jeff_Hager) or experiments (@Robert_Petitto). They are complete guides in their own right, and I have learned a lot from their tutorials.

Now that Glide Sheet is here, I thought why not since I know this glide editor like the back of my hand.

So for all newbies like myself (I joined this place in April of this year), there is now a “complete idiot’s guide to GS”. I will be adding exiting new stuff every now and then (and some editor tricks that I know). Already you can learn to build your own calculator, earnings calculator, paging etc from a Glide Sheet. I don’t plan to use google sheet examples (sorry).

Anyone interested in learning more about GS tricks and making the switch from Google sheets to GS is more than welcome to download the app.

Thank you

Hi @Wiz.Wazeer thanks for making the Idiot’s guide, but this idiot can’t find the guide:) I clicked the link & it appears to not be found? Cheers

I tried as well and it doesn’t work. I definitely qualify as the demographic LOL.

I also think you should distinguish the abbreviation for Glide Sheets now that I have GS embedded in my memory to signify Google Sheets.

Perhaps, if you find the new concept frustrating it could be GDS (goddamned sheets) or if you like them, GLS (Glide Loves Sheets).

Let’s have a contest and invite the Glide crew to help adopt new nomenclature. Top votes for 3 characters should win regardless of whether they have a funny secondary meaning.

:joy::joy::joy::joy: sorry folks !

Yes, I wasn’t so sure on the name either and especially the abbreviation, and being the star idiot, it didn’t register at first until I was writing GS. So I have changed the name to Glide Tables - idiots guide for dummies. I have resigned it and added new chapters. There are 5 tabs still open which I have yet to index but some some 16 chapters already indexed. On the open tabs the work is done so you could apply those especially chat function and “is included in” does include, and is not included in. I use the example of 4 secret rooms. I have yet to add the text for this section but by the time you’ve flipped through the first 16 chapters, I will have had them explained and indexed.

The new link is -

Your Deep Link on Intro to Lesson 2 says Not Found.

I know, it’s a work in progress. Still much appreciated.

Maybe reduce the number of Congratulations. I don’t feel worthy of them since I wasn’t following along, but just reading.

:joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy: I will look into it shortly. It was an example some using rich text

Rich text or not, I’m afraid that my eyes tend to bleed when I see anything but Arial font, or similar, on a small screen, or anywhere but on printed paper. It’s just too distracting for slow minds on fast devices. Your brain is working so efficiently that you don’t even notice it.

:joy::joy: you have your copy now. You can change the font. I wanted modern initially but then I thought since the word chapter was repeated throughout the app, the text should look a little like those in expensive editorials and books, . :rocket::rocket::rocket:. But like the abbreviation, this one has backfired too :joy::joy::blush:. I will change to modern (easier on the eyes, especially mine).

I’m not sure if it is a bug but I it might be and most probably is.

If I want the text on an entire tab To be be centred or left or right I don’t use several style tags. I just add all the different styles you could have in markdown inside a rich text and leave it at the bottom. When I’m adding new text it’s always in the middle on that tab. See we dummies know a few things (lol). Try replacing centre with left or right and it will have the same effect.

The reason you are seeing this effect is because I have used an increment button to give one tab the appearance of two tabs. Using the return home button I created the fiction of two tabs. When the button increments by 1 or - 1 The images remain as they are. Hence this effect.

It is most likely a bug :joy: as only markdown has this effect on the increment function. But it’s a safe one ! You can see the same on the dashboard too.

It’s the last component on the home tab. You can put it anywhere you like. It will even force text boxes aligned say left to the centre. It’s very useful. You can see some text boxes are aligned left but still centred on that page. Hope you find it useful.

Sorry meant to say fiction of two screens not tabs.

Yes try

@Les_Henderson,

Hi now I know why it is not working. When I deleted the previous Glide Sheet URL, with it the deep link URLs went too. I am replacing them now with the new ones.

Gliders, please don’t work directly on the template. I set it to copy so you could work on your own copy. I am always having to fix the same stuff all over again.

Thank you

The link doesn’t work :confused:
