Link or button to navigate to top of table or page?

If you’re at the bottom of a large table…it would be nice to be able to click on a button on link or to use a shortcut key to get back to the top of the table or the top of the page, vs scrolling all the way back up to the top.

Has anyone found a way to do this?

Thank you!

I use Ctrl+UpArrow to jump to the first row of a table that has no grouping applied, and Ctrl+DownArrow to jump to its last row.

It would be nice to also be able to jump to the top/bottom of a table even when grouping is applied.:grinning:

You could activate the outline under page options to get links to all your headers H1-H2-H3 headers - it floats on the top right of your page.

You can also put a button at the end of the page and choose the action open hyperlink. Use the hyperlink of the page and it will go to the top f the page. But, be careful when using this option in shared docs, because it will expose the hyperlink to anyone using the button.

Thank you for the suggestion…my tables are all grouped!

This is a nice work-around…I had the same idea with the button, but was trying to use the url for the table, which didn’t quite work. Thank you!

I just discovered a little hack here using what you taught me, even if it’s a little crude:

If you want to get to the interactive filters at the top of a long table from the bottom, add a table with no rows above the interactive filters and select the new table with no rows from the outline.

That works fine, but I am wondering if there’s a more elegant way to do this…is there something I can put above the interactive filters that will show up in the outline instead of a table with no rows?

I tried adding an H1 H2 and H3 based on your note above…but that didn’t work. But truthfully, I don’t really understand how those headers works.

Hello @Gregg_Stebben,

At the top of your page, below the page name (and perhaps the subtitle, which I never use), type a heading. Mark the heading (in my example “Top of page” with your mouse or cursor keys and then type Ctrl-Shift-1. This makes it a header of type H1 and it will appear at the top of the outline menu.
You can make headers the way I just described, or you can highlight some text and use the options in the top menu (standard you will see the “T” (for standard text), but you can click on the “T” with your mouse and select the other options, like H1-H2-H3, list types, etc. The 3rd way to make a heading is to start at the beginning of a new line, type "/h and you will see the various header options to choose from.
The way you mark thing (H1-H3) gives it a greater or lower priority in your outline menu. Mark the title of a table with your mouse and make it an H2 type header (with the shortcut Ctrl-Shift-2 of with the options in the top menu) and the indenting in the outline menu will be adjusted).

Greetings, Joost
