This documentation page references Altium Vault, which is no longer a supported product. Altium Vault and its component management features have migrated to Altium Concord Pro.

Parent page: Table

Draftsman object properties are definable options that specify the visual style, content and behavior of the placed object. The property settings for each type of object are defined in two different ways:

  • Pre-placement settings – most Table object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Draftsman - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog (access from the  button at the top-right of the workspace). Select the object in the Primitive List to reveal its options on the right.
  • Post-placement settings – all Table object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Table is selected in the workspace.

    The Table default settings in the Preferences dialog and the Table mode of the Properties panel

The below properties listing applies to the options available in both the Preferences dialog and the object Properties panel.

Title

  • Title – the title name string that will be displayed (if enabled) with the Table object. Use the associated button to toggle its visibility. Enter the title name and any desired system/custom parameters to create a meaningful name. See the Parameters section in the Properties panel's Document Options mode for a list of the currently available parameters.
  • Location – select the drop-down to choose from a range of relative locations for the title. The Manual option is automatically selected if the title is manually moved (dragged and dropped to a new location).
  • Font – sets the displayed font used for the object's title string.
    • Use Document Font checkbox selected – the title font used is that defined by the document options. See the Document Font entry in General section of the Properties panel when in Document Options mode.
    • Use Document Font not selected – use the drop-down menus to choose the desired font type and size, and select the lower buttons to enable text attributes. The associated color button () opens the color selector where the font color can be specified by RGB or HEX value, by freeform selection, or from a range of presets. Note that the slider control sets the color Opacity level, where 0% represents full transparency.

Properties

  • Outer Line – the thickness and style of the Table's border/outline. Use the line weight drop-down menu to choose from a range of line thickness presets and the line pattern menu to choose from a range of line styles. The associated color button () opens the color selector where the font color can be specified by RGB or HEX value, by freeform selection, or from a range of presets. Note that the slider control sets the color Opacity level, where 0% represents full transparency.
  • Inner Line – the thickness and style of the Table's inner lines that divide the cells. Use the line weight drop-down menu to choose from a range of line thickness presets and the line pattern menu to choose from a range of line styles. The associated color button () opens the line color selector where the font color can be specified by RGB or HEX value, by freeform selection, or from a range of presets. Note that the slider control sets the color Opacity level, where 0% represents full transparency.
  • Column Width – sets the width of the selected cell(s) and therefore the width the containing column. If the entire table is selected (by clicking on its outline or title), the width setting will be applied to all cells. Use the associated color button () to specify the color of the currently selected cells.
  • Cell Padding Vertical – sets the spacing below and above the text in the selected cell(s).
  • Cell Padding Horizontal – sets the spacing to left and right of the text in the selected cell(s).
  • Font – sets the font used for the text in the selected cell(s) to a specific style or to the default document font. See the Title Font information above.

 Alignment

Horizontal – use the left, center and right buttons to set the text alignment and positioning in the selected cell(s).
