We seriously need a better way of designing for the detail design view and smooth way of printing it.
I’m creating invoices using Coda and although I can gather my information great, I’m pretty stuck on how to send it out to clients in a nice viewable format.
As it stands, I think I’m gonna have to go down the API route to get anywhere with this which is a shame.
I’ve changed to the ‘Detail’ design view and although I can move a couple of boxes, it’s very limiting in terms of design and information I want to give.
Airtable have done this ok with their ‘Blocks’ add-on. Although you can get to where you need to be, the design process is too drawn out and something I could design in 2 minutes in Adobe Illustrator took me half a day in Airtable.
You need to be able to offer a quick and easy way of allowing your users to create a design view where they can design their own forms and how they want them to look including colours, fonts, images etc, a mini design program you could say.
Also, I’ve created a button that allows me to input data into my tables using a form (I think its pretty much the detail design view). I can add my information ok but I find myself adding extra rows by accident. Ideally I would like to be able to add my information and then click submit, only when submit has been clicked, then it will add the information to the tables.
