    Why Can't I cut and paste the route tables.

    Kirk Jess

      In previous versions, I was able to create a harnessboard, now that functionality is gone. I was able to cut and paste the tables from different drawings, now that functionality is gone. When you have a flattened harness that looks like garbage and is unuseable as a drawing, what am I to do to make my drawings. I used to be able to copy the tables from the garbage harnessboard drawing and place it on a drawing that was useable. I used to be able to choose the name for the drawing prior to it being created, now that option seems to be missing as well. What was once useable is becoming more and more difficult to deal with. Heck there used to be the option to choose your tables and update them in the old versions. Anyone figure out a workaround to make this work?

          Hi Kirk,


          You can now create 2 different styles of harnessboard.  One for annotation and one for manufacture.  The manufacturing style of drawing is intended to create a formboard solution.  I agree that the initial results of the automatic unfolding look pretty bad in many cases but in our experience editing this to create a viable formboard for manufacture is generally pretty easy.  We are still working to improve this further.


          However, if all you need is a BOM you don't necessarily have to create a drawing at all.  You can create a BOM in the assembly.  You can similarly create a drawing of the 3D assembly and add a BOM table to that.  No need to copy/paste them.


          If this doesn't answer your question could I ask you to describe exactly what you want to achieve and I'll try to help.
