I might just be losing it, but I have a table that I am continuously adding new rows to. Now, I'm pretty sure I've always put the cursor on the last cell, hit "tab" and a new row appeared. This is not working today and I'd like to know why. I could insert a row, that's an option with right-click. But "add" a row is not. So of course, because it's 4:50 pm and I would really like to be done with this, I'm just copy-pasting the last row and editing the content of the cells. But I don't like not knowing why something doesn't work and maybe it's because I'm working on a teeny tiny laptop at home instead of my beautiful computer at the office, but I don't think so? Please help before I throw things.
I do not have that problem!
I am not sure what your screen shot is meant to imply? I'm hoping you can clarify, because otherwise I have to "update preferences," which actually entails contacting my admin (I'm working from home on a laptop and they declined to give me admin rights; insert angry face here).
I see the table row (TR) and I see the table columns (TD); but where is the table itself (TABLE).
The following is correct HTML
<table width="200" border="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
Yes, I have all that (my screen shot was only meant to show the offending row). Dreamweaver itself would have caught incorrect HTML. I'm going to restore preferences and hope for the best.
Okay, I think I found it. Not sure why, but there was a misplaced <tr> about halfway through the table. It wasn't showing as a error, and the table was visually fine. BUT, when I put the <tr> where it belonged, "tab" for new row started working. [Insert shrugging emoji]
I do appreciate you both actually reading through and corresponding with me on this problem -- thank you!
DW CC doesn't like code errors. Use the built-in validation service and check your code often during development.
Window > Results > Validation.
Actually, I found it myself. And DW has a great little feature where it tells you not only that you have an error, but where it is (purposely created example below). But like I said, I found it, everything is working now, thanks for your input.
I think Ben's screenshot says it all. But just in case it doesn't, try restore preferences.
