Show table again / Tabelle wieder einblenden

Does anyone know how I can unhide a table that I have previously hidden? When I select “Show table”, the name of the hidden table is displayed, but I only have the options “Cancel” and “Close”. No matter what I click, the table does not reappear.

Weiß jemand, wie ich eine Tabelle wieder einblenden kann, die ich vorher ausgeblendet habe? Wenn ich “Tabelle einblenden” wähle, wird mir der Name der ausgeblendeten Tabelle angezeigt, ich habe aber nur die Optionen “Abbrechen” und “schließen”. Egal was ich klicke, die Tabelle erscheint nicht wieder.

Hey @AlKa, thanks for the question. :slight_smile:

In English, it’s called:

  • Hide Sheet
  • Show Sheet

How to Hide or Show a Sheet in Calc

  1. To hide a sheet, you should be able to:
  • Right-Click on a Sheet’s name > Hide Sheet.

  1. To unhide a sheet,…

After/if your spreadsheet has a hidden sheet, you should be able to:

  • Right-Click on a Sheet’s name > Show Sheet.


  1. A dialog/menu should pop up with a:
  • Checkbox next to each Sheet name

You then just have to:

  • Check which sheets you want to unhide.
    • Boxes WITH a checkmark ON = will unhide.
  • Press “CLOSE” button.

and the hidden sheets should reappear.


I tested this on COOLWSD, and it works fine.

Could you give a little more info on your install?

Hmmm… In your image, is there an incredibly hard-to-see or “invisible” checkbox there?

And yes, this does seem like an awkward menu that could use some tweaking.

Pressing on a scary “Close” button to “unhide sheets”/“do what you want” doesn’t seem very intuitive. :slight_smile:

I’ll bring it up in today’s COOL Weekly meeting!
