Adding automatic row numbering

Table Filter add-on allows you to enable either dynamic or static row numbering. The difference between these numbering types is in the following:

  • If you use dynamic row numbering, row numbering is updated each time you filter the table. So all the time your row numbers will look like 1, 2, 3 and so on.
  • If you use static row numbering, rows are numbered one time and row numbers are preserved all the time you filter the table. So after filtration your rows may be numbered like 2, 5, 6, 8 and so on.

You can enable automatic row numbering if you have a large data table.You can choose among the following options:

  • Dynamic Ascending
  • Dynamic Descending
  • Static Ascending
  • Static Descending
  1. Switch the page to edit mode.
  2. Select the macro and click Edit.
  3. Switch to the Table View tab.

From version 3.10.8, you can use the modificator ' * ' (asterisk) to preserve the first rows of the table even when they do not match the specified filtration criteria.

For example, if you want to show the first 3 rows of your table all the time, just enter '3*'. The table header will be included automatically.
