    Default Table Style Question

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Lately I've been working on electrical panel schedules in both excel and CAD. The company I work for is pretty particular about how they set up the schedules regarding colors and fonts, so they have a table style template set up. This works great, but I still have to pull up the adcenter and pull the style from a previous project to import. Is there any way to save it to my list of styles permanently so that I don't have to find it every time? If not, is there a way to save the file somewhere so I can import it myself easily in the future?

    Easy. Include the Table Style in your standard drawing template then every time you create a new drawing the table style will always be available right from the start.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    Back to the OP

    You could also place it on a Tool Palette.
