Pipe Table

How can I change the order of the pipes in my pipe table without recreating the table?

 

I found the "sort data" option, but what if I want a custom order?

Civil 3D will only allow you to sort your table on some type of data from within the table itself.  When you say custom order, is there any way of using any pipe data to get the order that you're looking for, or would Civil 3D think of that order as random?

 

I was going to tell you that you could sort the data based on a column that you would just hide from view, but I was unable to do that.  Setting the column width of the table to zero did nothing.  The smallest I could set it was 1.  The best you might be able to do is use the last column for sorting, and just cut it out of view.

 

Long story short is that you need to sort based on data in one of the columns.  Hope that helps.
