I have been experimenting with Tables in DT and I like the structure, but one of the things that I feel that is missing is having a column at the far left that has a row number (assuming LTR language) or better yet, the ability to turn off and on such a column. (Or maybe just a hint somewhere of the number of rows in the table). Does something like this already exist (or a way to get the same effect)?
There is no line numbering or column numbering, but the request is noted.
However… in the Form view (called Best Alternative) the Navigation Bar shows the number of records. (See the built-in Help in Documentation > Documents > Sheets.)
Revisiting this three-year old discussion after searching for this same idea. Has this been updated? I’ve been working on a project that could benefit from this (and from keeping the table in DT versus using an outside spreadsheet) and thought it would be worth asking before I kludge a workaround.
The editing/navigation bar shows the number of the current row and the number of rows.
You can always keep a spreadsheet file “inside” (not outside) DEVONthink and use the “Open with” feature. i do this all the time with my spreadsheets. In today’s world there is no reason to compromise and not use real spreadsheets.
