Is it possible to turn off the grid lines for a table in a drawing?
Not currently. How would you use this functionality if it did exist?
We are adding a drawing to our document package which will list all non-technical drawings related to the project, such as operations & maintenance manuals, technical notes (formal report on a subject/issue), procedures, etc. It is, essentially, a bibliography with a document number for each. Some of the titles will be long and there will be multiple authors in most cases. A table with grid lines will look busy. I don't have to use a table to list these items. But the documents will be grouped by type; and it would be nice to sort them by Doc #, author, date, etc.
Is all the information of the table generated by custom properties?? If not, you can create the table in excel and insert, then you can adjust the table just like an excel spreadsheet.
I have the same question. In our assembly BOM the numbering convention is: 1, 2, 3, etc for manufactured items, C1, C2, C3, etc for purchased items. Our balloons for the purchased items are set up as circular split line, with the upper text defaulting to 'C' and the lower text is the item number, autofilled from the drawing BOM. In the drawing BOM I have added a column to be filled with a 'C' when it is a purchased item. I would like to hide the grid line between this column and the Item No. column for clarity when referencing the drawing BOM.
You can't do that, but you can create a third column and use this help page to concatenate the values of the two columns, then hide the other columns. See help: search term "Combining Properties in Table Equations". This will accomplish the look you want.
do something crazy.....save the table as an excel file and then you have the functions of excel.......
You can simply merge the cells. This takes away the functionality of it being a cell......but neatly gets rid of the lines.
But seriously, using excel is probably the best way. You can export your table to excel, make the changes, and then just add it back in and VIOLA!
