Sometimes when I adjust the width on a cell in a table all of the fields will jump to the same size. I don't know if I just have a field clicked somewhere or this is a glitch but it is incredibly annoying. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Are you talking about design tables? If so what you are experiencing
speaks to Excels interface with Solidworks. In answer to your question
I have never seen such a setting.
What version of office and solidworks are you running?
No I am talking about tables in drawings (BOM's, Cut Lists,. etc). The issue seems to happen when you adjust the width of a column right after you resize the table using the lower right corner of the table. The widths of all the columns change to oddball sizes.
I know if you hold down the ctrl key and select multiple rows/columns
the ones selected change.
What version and service pack are you running?
2010 x64 SP3.1
Try updating to SP 5.0 if you can and see if it makes a difference.
Basically the table is thinking that after the global resize, you still have the whole thing selected and thus when you intend to change the width of one, it changes all of them. The first thing I usually change after a global adjust is the row height as there is very little to go wrong if they all go. Then the width change is fine. The other option is to make sure you select something outside, as in something other than the table. That forces it to release its selection of the whole thing. Frustrating, I know.
I have been using a short macro to automatically resize + fit and make the text go to single rows per cell only. See: http://www.spn-technologies.fi/swf/ResizeBOMColumns.htm
