Title block and tables - how do you split a cell??

Hey all,

 

I have a table in a drawing and want to split a cell into smaller cells. Is this possible?

I don't want to make all kinds of rows and columns and then delete only the ones needed. I cannot find an operator or tutorial on this. This should be ridicously easy....

 

Thanks a lot!

Peter

I think you need to go the other way: start with more rows/columns than you need and merge cells as desired.

Thanks, I don't want to do that though....silly NX. Just split the already perfectly sized and located cell.

As cowski said, you can't split a cell. However it's a kludge, but you could create a new table and place that over the existing one give the impression of a split cell.

When you make it part of the title block, then no one would know any different.

I've found in my experience, it's easier to make a titleblock from multiple tables, rather than try and make one fit what you want.

In your other thread, I posted a link to videos about templates and one of the videos covers titleblocks.

If you look at the NX help files covering the creation of a Title Block you will see that we assumed all along that you would use several Tabular Notes (AKA tables), sized as desired, and placed together to form a title block object.  In fact, the function to actually create a smart title block assumes that that is exactly what you've done.  In the user doc's you can find this at..

Awesome, great answers. I like the use of multipe tabular notes(tables) and will test that out. I will check out the videos. Unfortunately, we don't have the help files installed for NX10. But I did look in the Student Guide Drafting Essentials and found nothing. I have told our NX rep that NX help on the net is hard to file (user tutories, vids, etc unlike PTC and Solidworks). BUT....this forum has been helpful.

 

Thanks all!
