Yes this works, if i would like to have all rows numbered.
What i would like to do is the more manual way.
A user needs to insert some (~80) rows. These all rows must be numbered.
Then another box is added with ~45 Rows
so the user must decide if they need this counting.
I think it would be more “grist like”, to split such stuff in multiple subtables and reference them.
But it would be still good to have such “Auto-Numbering” features when needed. Maybe i should open a github issue?
For this one, you’d set the group manually (or fill in a range with the same group using the ⌘ D / Ctrl + Dshortcut), and the incrementing numerical suffix is added automatically.
Still, the original request is different. It is indeed sometimes very convenient to fill in a range with auto-incrementing values. It may not be hard to implement, as long as the interface is simple. Dragging a box is not so simple, but another idea is to select a range, press that existing ⌘ D / Ctrl + D shortcut, and then ask the user with a popup if they want to fill in the range with the values in the top cell, or an arithmetic sequence based on the top two cells (when both options seem possible). If that sounds useful, opening a github issue is a good way to go.
