You didn't state what happens when you insert a row.
This is what I have.
This is what I want.. The cells in the inserted row will be populated with document properties ($PRP)
then I want to save this as a revision table with the inserted data.
When I save it, and insert into drawing, the inserted row and data disappears reverting back to the first image.
This allows to use the dash for drawing release. And continue to "A" for next rev.
Thanks for the responses.
Welcome to the forums.
I'm unclear on what you mean by revision template.
I have drawing templates, and I have a revision Block saved in the design library. When I add the revision block to my drawing, I place it upon anchors present in the sheet format included in the drawing template. Its values shown are driven by properties that exist in the drawing. If defaults are shown, like 1/1/11 as date, then we know to edit custom properties within that drawing to populate new rev status.
This is because I will make several series of drawings (i.e. documents) from the same assemblies: general arrangements, bom balloon details, weldment fabrication details, connection details, full reference bom's, etc. Each drawing is submitted, commented, revised, and resubmitted independently as a separate document. This is the nature of my workflow and does not necessarily match yours.
Does this sound like what you want?
I believe that the OP is referring to the Revision table template. Similar to the BOM table template for BOM's.
I did see this post but, It only deals with columns not rows.
Try this for yourself and you will see what I mean.
- Insert the solid works default revision table in a new blank dwg.
- Insert a row Below the last row using the table "Insert" command.
- Save the table under a new name.
- Delete the existing table.
- Insert the new revision table.
- Is the new row still there? (not on mine)
- Also try putting document properties ($PRP) in the cells and saving that. What happens?
PS; this is all done in 2018 SP. 2.0
That's what I'm doing now.
Just wanted to make it automatic when the revision table is inserted.
it used to work great. or was it because I saved it in the template like that? it has been to long. I know when I saw it in the roll out I spent hours redoing them all. The first one took a while but the others flew threw the process.
darn I see what your talking about.
call var and report bug?
I cant get the first row to stick either. insert row below. and add issued for construction save and then insert into new drawing and it is missing.
Good thing I did not get changing the templates to include the rev table approved.
