Table And Table Style in AutoCAD
In this video, we will learn how to create a table and a new table style.
We can go to the annotation column in the command menu, select the table option, or type the shortcut key for this option's command prompt window.
The shortcut key for the insert table is the 'T+B+Enter' key.
As soon as we select this command, one menu will open in front of our screen, in which we have three options to insert the table.
One is to start from an empty table, the second is to start from a data link, and the third one is data extraction, i.e., from object data in the drawing.
Another option we have is column and row settings; in this option, we can specify the number of columns and rows we want in our table. We can also adjust the height and width of row and column, respectively.
Another option is 'Set Cell Styles.' It will ask to enter the First-row cell style, Second-row cell style, and remaining all other row cell styles. Cell styles will be like Title, Header, and Data.
As soon as we press OK, it will ask us where we want to paste this table.
After placing the table as per our choice, we can write inside it according to our requirements.
Now after inserting the table, we can also create a new table style. For this, we can select this option from our to modify panel. And after that, we will be able to see one menu appear in front of our screen.
Inside, we have general properties like fill colour, alignment, format, type, margins, merge cells, etc. We can edit every option according to our requirements.
We also have text properties like text style, text height, text colour, text angle, etc. We can add border properties like line weight, line type, colour, spacing etc. We also have one cell style preview option, which shows the preview of what we select and edit in different properties.
After completing all properties and setting each and everything of the table, we will press OK, and now we can use this table style that we created to insert the new table in this format.
