Having trouble with text size increasing on certain cells on my BOM! Using Sworks 2017 Serv-2. Every once in a while if I add or update a property in my part file
then go to my drawing the text gets really large! Any ideas!
Check the Font setting for Tables in your settings.
check if the font for the Table is set to use "Document Font" if this is set, the entire Table should be the same Font and size.
Thanks Andreas! This does help to overwrite the font layout however its not working right. Everything is large now. I cannot even open the Table Template (sldbomtbt) as solidworks 2017 doesn't even recognize the file type from 2014! I'm suprised it still loads this template. Guess I'll have to make a new one from scratch and hopefully that will work.
you cannot open a Table template in SW. set up your BOM to what you need and match the System settings and save it as your new Template, that should fix some Issues.
You can change the default table font in document properties. You can do it at table level, or at specific table levels, BOM, Rev, etc.
OK! I see where I went wrong here! I was under the impression that the table was an entity you could edit directly. I see now how to edit table on tblock and save-as. Still not sure why every once in a while you update a property in a part and the text in the cell jumps out really large and I have to keep resizing. This doesn't happen all the time just occasionally. Any body else have this situation.
Thanks for all the replys!
The table is an entity you can edit directly. It just gets messy that way
I've not had trouble with stray text since setting them in the document properties and setting the table to 'use document font'
Thanks Bjorn! I think I've got this straight now.
Appreciate all the feedback from all!
