Tables used at the drawing level, such as for title block info, general note organization, etc. should function in a similar manner to a word processor or spreadsheet. This mean that if a defined text style is applied to the table as a whole, any text/cells/rows/columns that go into that table should assume the text style of the table. After completing exhaustive testing in Creo 2.0, contacting my VAR, and researching the Creo community, I've come to the conclusion that I will have to make a custom mapkey to imitate this ubiquitous font functionality. I was hoping that with the improved text editing in Creo 3.0, the table functions would be better as well, but they are not. Here is my idea:
If I assign a text style to a selected table, all cells assume that text style, and it sticks, regardless of cell content. Currently, for this to happen, the cell needs a character of some type. Which I might be able to live with, but I it's worthless as soon as I add a row/column, or delete cell contents.
Any row or column that is added to a table will assume the table text style, if assigned. Otherwise, default/active. Currently, anything new added to a table is at the active text style.
This can be expanded, but at least include BASIC table text formatting that doesn't require the redundant task of changing text styles every time I add a row/column. This isn't a new issue and frankly, I'm very surprised it hasn't been addressed. I've found references/complaints in the Creo Community dating back to 2008.
I submit this request & its feedback constructively. As a newer user, if I'm totally missing something, I hope someone will let me know. I have researched Creo Help files, the Creo Community, general internet search, tech support at my VAR, and power users at my company. I plan to be an active member of this community and hope that I am well received. I look forward to all comments & votes!!
