Google Sheet Guidelines
Fluid Infinity will not show a partially loaded gallery. To avoid any connection issues, make sure that each item is properly linked to a compatible file type.
While you may apply multiple filters to an item, there can only be one category. There is a distinct difference between Categories and Filters. Categories are used by the Fluid Lightbox features. When applying additional filters on one item exclude any spaces in between filters:
Google Sheet Troubleshooting
I have my Google Sheet key but my table isn't displaying.
You most likely have some type of formatting applied to your table. Table Pro works best when the formatting of your table is as simple as possible (default formatting is best). Select the entire table (command + a) and then go to Format > Clear Formatting.
If it still doesn't work then please follow the instructions below:
- Open the original Google Sheet. Hit Command + A (or CTRL + A for windows).
- Copy the data by hitting Command + C (or CTRL + C for windows).
- Create a new Google Sheet.
- Go to Edit > Paste special > Paste values only
