Table Anchors

Anchors position tables with respect to a drawing sheet format. Each type of annotation table has its own anchor point in a drawing sheet format.

When you do not attach a table to an anchor point, you can drag it to endpoints or lines in the sheet format.

To set a table anchor point:

  1. In the FeatureManager design tree, expand Sheet Format FM_Sheet_Format.gif for the active drawing sheet.
  2. Right-click the anchor you want to set and select Set Anchor. Choose from:
    General Table Anchor Revision Table Anchor
    Bill of Materials Anchor Weld Table Anchor
    Hole Table Anchor Bend Table Anchor
    Weldment Cut List Anchor Punch Table Anchor
  3. Click in the graphics area to specify the anchor point.
