Make Tables similar to Excel

Status: Accepted
by *Expert Elite* on ‎01-08-2013 08:46 AM

We require Excel to use Inventor so why don't Inventor's tables work the same as Excels?

e.g. (off the top of my head)

  • F2 to edit the cell  (personally REALLY miss not having that)
  • when editing the cell with F2 have Ctrl+left/right to skip words
  • Enter to finish the cell and alt+enter for a new line within the cell
  • merge cells?  (not sure the need, but would help with copy/paste betwen Iv and Excel)
  • borders like Excel

also, while talking about tables - line-breaks in titles, is that in yet?
