Table Position

The stationary corner controls the direction in which the table expands when adding new columns or rows.

Set the Stationary corner to:

PM_Table_Anchor_TopLeft.gif Top Left New columns extend to the right and new rows extend below the anchor point.
PM_Table_Anchor_TopRight.gif Top Right New columns extend to the left and new rows extend below the anchor point.

Attach to anchor point

Attaches the specified corner to the table anchor.

When you do not attach a table to an anchor point, you can drag it to endpoints or lines in the sheet format.
The Stationary corner option is not available when you first create the table. If the table is anchored on creation, the stationary corner is automatically selected on the drawing sheet in the quadrant nearest the table anchor.

Display title Displays the text in Title in a header row across the width of the table.
Position Set the title location to Table Header Top table_formatting_header_top.png or Table Header Bottom table_formatting_header_bottom.png.
