FOP Table - Cannot Save Settings

FOP Table PropertiesFOP Table Properties

I created a custom Family of Parts Table and I want to save the settings.  But, as you can see from the above image, the option to name and save the settings is greyed out and not available.


Which text file does the FOP Table save to?


I narrowed it down to not being:

  • blocktable.txt
  • draftlist.txt
  • usertable.txt


And those are the only three text files I see to store table information.

FYI, there are currently existing ERs requesting the ability to save the FOP table settings for reuse.

I reported this in 2015 ( my IR 7516627), in answer i got this:

"This is working as designed. There is currently an existing ER requesting this functionality. I will attach this IR to the existing ER.
For whatever reason the product planner chose not have the functionality available with FOPs."

Hopefully one more vote added to the ER gets it into the developers radar.  No reason that table functionality is not consistent across ALL tables, especially when the dialog is already there.
