Parts List Wrapping Direction

202 Views, 3 Replies

When a parts list in an Inventor drawing is wrapped it always takes the bottom portion and kicks it to the left.

Is there a way to kick it to the right?  So when you are looking at the BOM it reads such that item 1 is in the first group and not the second.

Hi Cadmanto,

 

You can right-click on the parts list and choose Edit Parts List, then click the Table Layout button, then set the wrap direction. I don't recall a way to set this up in the Parts List style, but there might be one.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis

There is also a radio button set when placing the parts list. See graphic.
