Trying to set up our companies drawing templates. Now to link properties and populate the title block I've seen videos that have hidden cells.
In the above picture I've added the red rectangles to indicate the hidden cells used for populating the title block more easily.
My question is: I'm using tabular note for title block definition. To get the shape and form that I require I'll have to merge cells. After merging these cells become 1 big cell. Once it has become 1 big cell, I can't make a link in the populate titleblock window anymore, because there's already text (i.e.: DRAWN BY
How do I keep, or create, the hidden cells. So it looks like there's more than 1 line of text in a title block cell.
Video that showcases what I mean:
https://vimeo.com/101692825 (about 8:30 minutes in)
Is there perhaps a video that also shows how the title block itself is created? So not just the attributes.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I'm editing the cell, and look at the cell border section.. regardless of which border I choose. It'll stay visible in whole. Assuming this is what you meant:
Or is that not the correct way to do it?
Using your example above, select the "drawn by" cell and set the bottom border to invisible; then select the input cell and set the top border to invisible.
I am the creator of the video you referred to. When I create title blocks, I avoid using one table when there are different sized fields. I create a series of tables that are placed to together to give the impression of one large title block.
Otherwise, Cowski's suggestion will work for what you are after.
