The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to insert a column to the left of the currently selected column in a custom table in the active Draftsman document (*.PCBDwf).

For a high-level look at how the Altium Draftsman Drawing System provides an interactive approach to the creation of production documentation for your PCBs, see Draftsman.


This command is accessed from the PcbDrawing Editor by right-clicking within a placed table and choosing the Table » Insert Column Left command from the context menu.


First, ensure that the correct column is selected in the table - the column to the left of which you wish to insert a new column. Do this by simply clicking on any cell within the required column (the text cursor will appear in that cell).

After launching the command, a new column will appear in the table to the left of the currently selected column.


  1. Defaults for the custom table primitive type can be defined on the Draftsman - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog.
