Disabling favorites module


I have activated favorite module on my project.
But I decided to remove it now.
I have removed all favorite instances from the designer area.
I also removed “is favorite” column in data editor.

But, I’m still getting favorites bar on top of my inline lists.

Am I missing something?
Anybody had that issue before ?

Many Thanks

What’s the layout you used for the tab? If you have an inline list that’s a details layout and the favorite section should not be there.

I’m using details layout on all my tabs.
I checked every single inline list, couldn’t find
And there is no “is favorite” column in my sheet now.
Still, I’m getting all/favourites bar at the top

How can I reproduce the problem? I don’t see a favorites module in your app.

I can see the fav Segment control as below screenshot. Can you share the screenshot of your designer for this layout? Or if possible can create a duplicate of this app and share with us.

The screenshot is below

@zeki Just check the below setting as well (scroll at the bottom). I just tried in my app and it gets removed. The Button has the Favourite setting.

Yes, but there is no favorite overlay option in map layout.

Yup… i can see Map Layout doesn’t have Fav Overlay… Quite Strange…
I just created the same design and saw a Fav Segment when enabled the Fav Button on the detail screen but it got removed as i remove the fav.
There is somewhere in the app fav enabled which is causing it shown here by some linking
Is it possible to give a sample or access to your app?

But there is no “is_favorites” column on the sheet
I think, it’s kind of bug or glitch


I deleted one of my relation link and create it again.
It’s fixed.

Thanks so much for the help


This is a bug in how we handle favorites. I’m glad you worked around it. It seems we retain some settings even if they are not currently in use which tricks Glide into thinking that favorites is in use.

Hello Jason
I thought the same that’s why I removed the linked relations and it worked after.
I’m sure it will be fixed very soon.

Argh. I had not used Fav before in my app because I use a Swipe interface for ‘Cards’ and that must be a tab with an INLINE list and NOT a details screen.

I was playing around chatting with @Robert_Petitto to see if I could get Favs working nicely in the interface with card swiping, and worked out that if I did NOT make a fav column, but allowed Favs as a button on the image, then a new column would appear and Favs would work.

So far, so good.

BUT in the UX I get a menu bar:

That bar makes no sense in the Swipe interface for me, as those ‘fav’ cards have been swiped and disappear. So I do NOT WANT the Fav toggle bar!

OK, I delete the Is Favorite? column. No, I cannot. I take the button away. No change. There is no column for Favs, but the UX keeps showing me the menu.

Moreover it seems like I have to remake my ENTIRE DATA SHEET to be able to get it working the way it was. Glide has an undeleteable Is Fav column stored, and so is presenting the menu no matter what. This is going to take me hours to fix (as the tab is very complex) I could go to a copy… BUT I cannot copy design elements so it is all manual and so time-consuming, error prone, and very much not a good thing.

All because the Fav column is invisibly not deleted. Argh!

You can kinda hide it with CSS, but it leaves a gap at the top:

That would sort of work, but screen real estate is at a premium, especially as images do not properly display with Swipes! I often get a cut off card image :frowning: but thanks for the css :slight_smile:
