Drawing Tools: Support Properties Table

The Support Properties Table option allows you to add a table of support properties to the view.

NOTE: this option is only enabled if support has been added to the model.

To add a Support Properties Table:

  1. Select Support Properties Table  from the toolbar or the Add Tool sub-menu of the Tools menu.

  2. Pick the point where you want to add the Properties Table. Enter the point graphically with the mouse, or enter x,y coordinates in the prompt line. By default, this point will correspond to the center of the table.

  3. A table of all support types currently used in the model (as defined in the Support Properties dialog) will be added to the view.

After a Properties Table has been added, it can be formatted, moved, edited, etc. See the Edit Tools Overview topic for details.

Dynamic Text Feature

A feature of the Properties Table drawing tool is that the contents of the table are automatically updated, if the support properties are changed. This ensures that the actual properties used in the analysis are always displayed in the table.
