๐Ÿ†• Please try the new Glide builder

How do add the ability for users to add content for a tab? it used to be on the tab, but I canโ€™t find a way to do that

Drag and drop is great and helpful. butโ€ฆ

The moment you drag and drop a hidden tab - it becomes visible. Would it be possible to keep the default order for all tab-items as TABs, MENU followed by hidden tabs. Its just makes it easier.

This sounds promising. It would be very helpful if you could also make the PLAY mode and SELECT mode selectable with kybd commands. This will save a lot of mousing/clicking - and may complement your efforts to make SELECT mode more powerful.

Press and hold Command/Windows key.

โŒ˜+Option on Mac. Thanks.

Except itโ€™s broken on Mac.

The idea of having the content (or artboard) flanked either side by panels is a familiar design pattern, think Figma, Sketch and to some extent Adobe etc. I use all three products in various ways and the idea works a treat, mainly because I rarely interact with the left panel as in most cases it is the right panel where all my action and work is focussed.

I havenโ€™t got stuck in to the new Glide builder yet but from seeing the screen posted it seems both tabs will require equal focus which will make the process potentially frustrating. Also, having the panels side by side on the right, as proposed, is not a viable solution in my opinion as it just looks more messy and confusing, and will throw up some usability challenges.

Iโ€™ve just had a quick play with the new builder and I have to say I love it! Sure, nothing is perfect but I feel the trade off overall is more than worth it.

If the distance travelled between the left and right panels is a big issue for people then do what I do: just resize your browser screen!

Itโ€™s a simple solution, but stupidly effective.

I really appreciated your pragmatism. I struggle with a chronic case of Quixotism, so any time time I can remind myself to just let go a little and roll with can be therapeutic. So I resized a separate browser window and even accepted that I will no longer be able to jump between tabs as easily. Oh, and I need to make very different use of my 2 screen set-up. But, okay. Roll with it.

Then I opened the data editor and all hope was lost. I still appreciate your pragmatism, but sorryโ€ฆ this one isnโ€™t gonna work for me. :no_good_man:

I have a solution for the data editor too: resize your browser screen!

Hi there,

How do I upload photos in the new data editor? I used to be able to double click the cell and the upload box popped up. That no longer happens.

Thanks!

That should still work (it does for me).
I know this might be obvious, butโ€ฆ is the column you are clicking in an Image column?

Hi @Darren_Murphy thanks for your response. Yes, itโ€™s an image column. It doesnโ€™t work for me anymore

May be already mentioned: Need confirmation dialogue on tab deletion. No mishaps yet but easy to happen.

Are these the icons you mean?

No, I meean the icons on the tabs list. in many cases I donโ€™t use nay title and in the old editor you could see the icon on the list and I used to it to find the right tabs but now I just see empty row when deleting the title.

Ha, yup. I just noticed after testing removing the title. I have an app like that, but havenโ€™t worked on it with the new build. Probably just as well.

Thanks to the Glide team.
If I use Glide table to create App, does this mean that my APP can be execute in China?

Thanks.

@garrison, Resizing is a good idea.
