Drafting limitations

Hello All,

 

I have run into a few shortcommings in drafting. My hope is that I missed something and somebody can point that out.

 

1. Is there a way to change the row height of a hole table?

2. Is there a way to line up text with title block or view objects. I know there are objects (like lines) that can be added to line text up to. But how can the alignment object be aligned to existing geometry? Or how can text be lined up directly to title block or view objects? Along this same line, is there a way to line up or snap tables (SE generated and/or spreadsheets) to titble blocks and or view objects.

 

Thank in advance, especially if any have solutions!

Hi,

 

I try to answer your questions:

1. Row height depends on font size. If you edit font size it will modify row height.

 

2. There is no direct way to do this, but you have some possibilities. You can use the Snap to grid options to line up text... Or you can use Annotation alignment shape...

Thank Imics,

 

1. I have already chosen my font height. My goal is to reduce the row hight relative to the font height. Because I'm noly working on A sized paper only, The hole tables are taking up huge amounts of room. I was looking for a way to force the row height to 0.15" for 3/32" text.

2. There does not appear to be a way to line up aligment objects (Annotation alignment shapes) to regular object. They should have a way to tag standard objects as alignment objects and eliminate seporate alignment objects. This would work just like construction lines, i.e. a switch toggle on the line properties. It could work just like relations but for drafting. Tools already in place just a new application.

Hi,



I understand your "problem" and I think you should ask ER's for these.

Who is ER, and how should I ask her?

I have heard that the option to "Snap" a table to lines on the draft is coming
