Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a table layer, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Narrator] We're now starting a new chapter…in our annotating…effectively in AutoCAD course.…And we're going to be looking at…setting up an AutoCAD table.…Now, you see the name of the drawing…at the top of the screen.…It's very similar to the previous chapter,…but what I've done is I've saved it and renamed…it as 07_Tables.dwg…And as usual, you can download that accordingly…to follow along with the video.…So, in this first video all we're going to do…is set up the new table's layer.…
Now, I cannot stress enough when you're annotating in…AutoCAD, everything new that you bring into your drawing,…you make sure that you create a new layer for it.…So, things like tables, they would have a layer.…Texts would have a layer.…Dimensions would have a layer and so on, like we've…done in the previous chapters.…So, we're adding a new feature, a new object to our drawing…and it's going to be an AutoCAD table.…So, we go to the home tab on the ribbon, layers panel…as usual, layer properties manager, and there we are there.…
See things like TEXT and DIMS so we just create a new layer…
