To insert a table, use the corresponding button in the formatting toolbar, either on web or mobile:
Upon creation, your table will only have one cell. To insert additional columns or rows, place your cursor inside the cell and check out the formatting bar again:
Adding a new column will append it to the right of the current cell and adding a new row will insert it below the current one:
Cell range selection
Move cursor a cell to the right
If on the last column, insert new column to the right
If on the last column, insert new row below
Move cursor a cell to the left
Move cursor a cell below
If on an empty row, delete it and exit the table;
Otherwise, insert new row below.
If in an empty cell, move cursor a cell to the left;
If in the first cell on an empty row, delete the row
The 2nd will clear cell formatting;
The 3rd will remove the row/column if an entire row/column is selected.
Move the current row up or down inside the table
Move the current column left or right inside the table
You can select multiple cells using one of the following options:
Shift-Arrow-keys, for example
Shift-Down to select the current cell and the cell below it.
The mouse cursor, by clicking and dragging over your desired selection
Once you have a cell range selection, you can perform the following options:
Remove cell contents, formatting, or entire rows/columns using
Backspace (check out Table manipulation using the keyboard);
Copy cell information or paste new content inside the cell selection.
💡 Note that you can reorder rows and columns from inside any cell, without selecting the whole range.
Tables support all of the usual formatting options for the contents of a cell:
Bold / italics /
Numbered lists too
Links and Rich Footnotes
Images with captions and alignment
To insert any of the supported types of content, simply use the formatting bar just as you would do outside of a table ✨.
Tables are even more powerful behind the scenes! To unlock extra formatting features, use software such as Google Sheets to paste tables into Amplenote and preserve all of the following extra styling (as of October 25th, 2022):
Cell background color
Cell background color
Text and BG color
In addition to the unsupported styling mentioned above, pasting from Google Sheets also preserves Amplenote-supported options such as text formatting and images.
As of the end of October 2022, the plan for the next iteration of tables is to support formulas! After that patch, tables will be considerably more powerful in Amplenote and will support advanced use cases such as Budget Planning, Expense Tracking, Workout Tracking, etc.
For now, consider using tables for:
Organizing large sets of related data, such as company employees, inventory, concert set lists, etc.
