I am using Creo/ELEMENT AKA WF5.
I know in the past we can set the default text justification and test height to table cells. When you add a new row to the table, the justification and text height remain the same. Has this functionality been taken away?
Formatting a cell will automatically add a single space character to it in order to apply the formatting to actual text. Cells with nothing in them (ex. using 'delete contents') will not contain any formatting. New rows/columns added to the table will not have any of the Creo default formatting and cannot be pre-configured differently. It's been this way since at least Wildfire 1 (circa 2003). Not sure about prior to that...
If you have maintenance, please consider voting up these product ideas:
I believe prior to Wildfire when we use to get the TABLE MENU where we can set the default justification and text height for new cells. From what I have found so far this is no longer a ProE functionality. I followed the link and voted, but with my vote it was only at 13 since 2012 so this does not look too hopeful at this time lol.
You're not going to believe this, but the menu manager is still available!!! To access it, create a mapkey with the #TABLE command:
mapkey table #TABLE;
I've just confirmed that applying justification to the table is kept when new rows or columns are added.
I have not been able to find the commands that control text size or font.
Not just Creo Elements/Pro (aka. Wildfire 5), but even still in Creo 3! This really goes to show that the core code from the original Pro/Engineer is still very much alive underneath all the new interfaces of the last 12+ years.
The same result (in Creo 2 & Creo 3) can be achieved by selecting the column, right click and select text style in the pop up menu. Any alignment changes you make there will stick and be implemented in new rows. Font changes do not seem to stick, however.
