Table has fallen apart

I have been using the Serial Numbers table.

Recently after adding an entry the table fell apart on the 25th row.

From the 25th row onwards it is not a table but just plain text with what used to be each cell now just text on a new line.

Of course there is no undo.

If I insert more rows/columns in the table they appear after the plain text items.

Re: Table has fallen apart

If I select the non-table text and apply a set of (6) columns via the Text menu all the previous cell text appears only in the 1st column of that set.

Interesting. I'm not aware of any limitation in the table sizes (the OS provides the table feature, so it's not something I have much control over) — I can certainly create larger tables.

I think the only solution would be to copy the plain text content, reduce the size fo the table to 25 rows, then increase it again, and paste the values in the individual table cells, one at a time.

Fun.

How many times might I be doing this again?

I don't recall hearing this happening to anyone else, so hopefully all will be well once you correct it.
