You can open the sizing table editor by clicking on "Edit" on the table layout block. There are many options available here so we will walk through each features.
1. Table Type
There are 2 types of table you can create in the app.
- Regular table: this is most likely the table you'll create.
- Cross table: this is commonly used for when you have a weight/height table.
2. Hide Table
Toggling this button would hide the table from showing up. Usually the only time you will want to hide a table is when you create a recommender based on a table but you don't want the table to show up.
3. Unit Direction
There are 2 types of unit directions: rows and columns. The direction should be based on where you put the measurement names (i.e. waist length, chest length, weight). If you put the measurement names on the first row, then the unit direction should be column. This allows you to set up different units for each measurement (i.e. inches for length and pounds for weight).

Column unit direction:
4. Unit Selectors
Setting the unit selector enables the unit conversion button!
Unit selectors will be shown on top (if direction is column) or on the left (if direction is row) of the table editor. Each column or row will have a corresponding selector. Clicking on it will show the selector menu which helps set the unit for the row or column (see below for details). If the entire table uses the same measurements, you can click on Update all to conveniently update all the measurements. The app would automatically show unit conversion only when units are set.
When you click on the unit selector, you will see this drop down window.
- Unit system toggle: You can insert either units in US unit systems or in Metric systems. Clicking on this will toggle the menu selection. You can even set up the table with units from both systems and the app will automatically convert them to the same units when showing to the shoppers.
- Unit selection menu: This menu covers most of the unit measurements from both unit systems. Select the ones that fits your need.
5. Table content
Now, here is the the most important part of the table. The table content editor behaves similarly to excel of google sheets. You can navigate with ➡️, ⬆️, ⬅️ and ⬇️ keys.
- Table menu: Right click on the table to display the table menu. From here, you can perform a series of actions like Add new Row or Delete a column.
- Keyboard shortcuts:
- Merging table cells: You can combine multiple cells together to create more unique size chart you want!
