Loving the new grid->table mode. However, there are a few issues that are affecting UX and quality of life I wanted to bring attention to, in order:
- Editing Text/Numbers
When single-clicking on a text/number cell (that is: selecting the cell itself, NOT double clicking your cursor into it) and then typing a number, the typed number appends onto the existing numbers. This is not my expected behavior - nor is it the norm in any other spreadsheet software I am familiar with (notably: excel, google sheets, etc.) - nor is this the behavior when pasting text onto a cell. I would expect that typing onto a single-clicked cell would completely overwrite the existing content, while typing into a double-clicked cell (with placed cursor) would add characters wherever the cursor is placed. Personally, I find this tremendously unintuitive and frustrating, particularly with numbers: I almost never want to change a value in a cell by multiplying-by-ten-and-adding-whatever-key-i-just-typed. I also cannot think of very many cases where this is how people interact with number data.
- Deselecting large selections
It is currently very easy to select a number of rows (great!). Unfortunately, it is not so easy to deselect them. Based on general UI/UX expectations from excel, google sheets, Mac Finder, Windows Explorer, etc, I would expect that I am able to click into an empty area to deselect all that is selected. Unfortunately, the most expedient way currently seems to be to click the “select all” header checkbox twice.
- Right-Click actions on all selections
Currently, if selecting a right-click action amongst a large selection set, this action only applies to a single action. This runs counter to my intuitive expectation, which is that this action will apply to all selected entities.
The first issue on this list is - for me - by far the most frustrating. The others seem like small quality of life tweaks.
And (because it bears repeating) I adore fibery. It’s the best product in the space by a landslide. The recent updates are amazing. Keep up the incredible work
