How do I set default Table Styles for Parts Lists see video. I would delete the Normal style from my template 

but it won't let me . What are some reasons it would not allow me to delete a Table Style

(view in My Videos)

ps: I have a Text Style that is name Normal as well.

When setting up styles, you have to go one extra step then pull back a step.

 

For example. If you want to define a detail style in your drafting tempalte. You have to use the draft template with a model file. Add a detail. Then save the detail style. Then delete the model and views used to create the details after the style has been saved.

 

For the Parts list, You have to decide how you want to use it to set it up.

Delete table styles in the styles dialog. I accidently highlighted "text" instead of "table" but you get the idea.

Yes, @bshand in on it, but I'm not sure you can delete the Normal table, or Text style, ahead of creating a new one to be present, if only one entry exists, then it become the default. [make sure to use the "Based on - None" option]

Here is what it looks like , the Delete button is grayed out. I guess it is no big deal now 

that I know how to default the one I use.

Hi @Milro

 

 

 

I also think, that You can not delete the Normal Table Style, but what You can do is, YOu can rename it.

 

So just give it the name You want and change the parameters.

Finally it wil be the same as creating a new table style and deleting the old one

Thanks Guys for your help, it is appreciated . I have modified the Normal to match the Cut List Table style 

and renamed it and it works great . I was hoping I would be able to control what style it would 

use per saved Parts List automatically,(would be nice).

Hi @Milro

 

 

IMHO the table style which is used for a BOM table is saved with the BOM name

 

At least it does it here for me and for years.

So what you are saying is that I could make let's say Single Part Cut List BOM Table use Table Style

Cut List Table and A Bill of Material BOM table use Normal or whatever style I choose without 

having to manually select table style?
