I'm having trouble with a table 7 rows wide and 9 rows long. When beginning to type info into cells located around the middle of the table, the whole table suddenly vanishes. Any ideas?

I am sorry to hear you're unable to edit the cells in the middle of your table. This sounds pretty campaign-specific, so I hopped into your account to take a peek. I found that I was able to type in the middle of your table. To test things further, I also added a new table and was able to type in all cells there too. But I'll admit that Emma was a little "sensitive" when I moved quickly between cells. Tables are pretty new, and as such, we are still fine tuning the functionality. Emma choked a time or two when I moved too fast, but as long as I worked slowly and methodically, I was able to type in any cell in both tables.

My recommendations are this:

1. type the text into each cell and avoid pasting text in a table
2. proceed slowly from cell to cell
3. review our table formatting tips here

I hope a little extra measure of caution will do the trick! If you need a hand with anything else, feel free to reply back and we'll take another look.

this happened over and over to me.  very frustrating!  i had to move super slow, and it seemed some characters caused all work in the table to go poof.   Also i would like to know how to control the width of the columns in the table.

Hi there! I'm creating a new thread for us to use to chat through your question about column widths. We're researching and will be back with you in this new space. :)

Please reference the new conversation here: How do I control the width of my table's columns?

I'm having the same problem. I just entered all my data in a table only to have it disappear when I put in the last item! HELP!!!! I am so aggravated.

Hi Kathy -- I'm so sorry for the frustration here. I'd love to hop into your account and take a look, but I'm having trouble locating your account.
Will you please let me know the name of the account in which you're working? (The account name appears on your Emma invoices. That should be enough for me to jump in and check it out; no need to give the account ID.) The mailing name would be super helpful as well!
