Part Table attachment locations, IV 12

131 Views, 4 Replies

When I create a parts list in an IDW for an assembly, I place it above our title block. The list seems to "snap" into place. Unfortunately, when a part is added to the assembly, the table expands into the title block. I want to keep the parts list headings at the top of table. Is there any way to make the table grow upwards, instead of down into the title block?

 

Thanks,

Manage Tab, Styles Editor.  Look for parts lists... there may be more than one so you'll need to find out which one your company is using.  Look to the right where it says direction, you can change the direction by picking the appropriate box there.

Good Luck

You had me hopeful there for a second. I changed the setting in the style table, and as advertised, the new parts are added to the top of the list rather than the bottom. Unfortunately, the top of the table still stays fixed, and it expands below.

 

Any other thoughts?

Well, if this is right, it's kind of goofy... but it looks to me like the only way to do it is to move the header to the bottom.  That doesn't seem very flexible in my opinion.

 

Anyone else want to weigh in?

Chris.

You are right, heading at the bottom.
