A Draftsman Drill Table is an automatically generated table object that contains board drill symbols and data. The Drill Table, combined with Draftsman's Drill Drawing View, provides both tabular and graphic information for the board fabrication process.
Each Drill Table entry, representing a specified type of drill hole (and matching Symbol), can include a range of hole information such as its size, plated construction and population count. The table's visual style and data content, including the symbol used, is configurable in (or via) the Properties panel.
A Drill Table is available for placement in a PCB project Draftsman document from the Editor as follows:
After launching the command, drill hole data is retrieved from the source PCB file, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and the generated Drill Table is attached to the cursor. Move the cursor to the desired position then click to confirm the placement.
The position of a placed Drill Table may be graphically changed by selecting the table in the design space then dragging it to a new location. Note that the table cannot be graphically resized, but will automatically scale to accommodate the font style/size, as specified in the Properties panel.

The non-graphical method of editing a Drill Table is available in the Draftsman Properties panel, which provides a range of editable properties, style and design content settings for placed Draftsman objects.
To open the Properties panel and access the properties of a placed Drill Table:
If the Properties panel is already active, click on the Drill Table object to access its properties in the panel.
The Properties panel supports multiple object editing, where the property settings that are identical in all currently selected objects can be modified.
