Using Inspection Oval in General Table

Question asked by Derek Eldridge on May 26, 2017

I'm using a General Table on a drawing to depict Specification for the component. In this case, the component is a coil spring.

Without getting into too much detail, I want to encircle a few of the cell's contents with an inspection oval (aka CTF circle).

I know this can be done in a regular note, but the formatting seems to be missing in the table.


While writing this question, I found my own work around. Please still let me know if there is an easier way to do this:

  1. Create a "Note"
  2. Type Text you want in the Inspection Oval
  3. Highlight text you want to encircle in the "Note"
  4. In the property window look for "Border", and select the pulldown for "Inspection"
  5. With Text still highlighted, select "Ctrl+C" to copy
  6. Press "Escape Key" to exit command
  7. In the Table, double click the cell you want the copied text
  8. Press "Ctrl+V" to paste the text (WITH THE INSPECTION SYMBOL)


The Text now located in the Table can be edited and the "Inspection Symbol" will remain.
