Table Menu option missing

I have Xara Designer Pro X 19.0.1.65946  DL x64 Feb  7 2023 (on Windows 10) and I don't have a Table menu option at the bottom of the left side toolbar. I can insert a table from the top "insert" menu (it goes to the online content catalog), but that's it. Once I'm in the table I can only edit the text or the size of rows/columns, but the formatting menu options has disappeared. I uninstalled and re-installed last week, but it was no help. I'm honestly not sure when it disappeared. Does anyone know where to start? Thanks for your time.

Hi

This sounds like you have hidden/turned off some of the toolbars and panes and reorganized the pane layout.

The left toolbar is the 'local' built in tools of Web Designer, the Insert menu opens the Online Catalog for items such as Tables.

The Online gallery by default is displayed on the right side of the program interface see image below, note mine say Local Designs Gallery because I have downloaded the entire Online gallery to my PC - I would suggest you do the same if you have sufficient disc space.

Press Shift + F10 if yours is not displayed

. . . . the formatting menu options has disappeared . . . .

Use the Window, Control bars option to set control bars on/off, for Text formatting the standard text toolbar should automatically appear when using the Text tool.

Hi John, Thanks for the quick reply!! The SHIFT + F10 brought back the right side LOCAL DESIGNS GALLERY - thanks! (everything else on the right side was already there. The text tool inside a cell seems to work okay.

Is the Table Toolbar no longer an option?

I've looked through the CONTROL BARS options and there is no table toolbar or table icon in any of the other menus. (Forgive me if I don't use the correct terms). So, when I click in a table, I have no other options - unless I'm remember wrong - to add columns in the middle of the table. I can only add columns to the far right or rows at the bottom, not in the middle anywhere. There's also no way to copy/paste a cell without using the text tool inside a cell and cutting/pasting to move every cell I need moved. If I use the selector tool to click on a cell and choose copy, then if I try to paste it in another cell it just pastes the entire table onto the page, not just the single cell I had copied. Previous versions I was able to work within the table more. Or at least I thought.

Thanks for your time - I appreciate it.

Hi

The table tool shown above is available in the Xara product Xara Designer Pro+ v22

You have the Magix version of Xara Designer Pro X v19 which is not as fully featured as Pro+

Thanks, John. That makes more sense. I had found the table toolbar (that screenshot I shared) under the Xara's online product manual for "Welcome to Xara Designer Pro", but it didn't list the exact version. My mistake. Thank your for your time. I'm glad I was able to get the table gallery back on the right side again. Thanks for your valuable time!
