How to sort or delete rows in editor

I am new to plotly2.0, but I do not seem to be able to sort the table I imported, or even delete a mistakenly added empty row. I would rather not take everything offline again just for quick editing, and then reimport. Definitely not after accidental changes to my data, like when I added the empty row. How does the editor work, then?

Hello,

Welcome to Plotly!

For the time being, there isn’t a way to delete the grids or columns. Plotly 2 is still in its alpha stage, and we’re working on adding really great features. It will be something you’ll be able to do in the near future, but for the moment, your best option is to switch back to Plotly 1.0.

For now, you can edit your data in their grid by double-clicking on each cell. You can also copy/paste. However, if you do want to make bigger changes to your data, even naming your columns, I recommend doing so in your actual file, or working in the old workspace.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
