Modification Tools Package for AcDbTable cells.

General Usage Instructions

AutoTableX-CellSuite is designed to simplify the modification operation of AcDbTable and provide an easy, simple, convenient and powerful way to manipulate AcDbTable and AcDbTable cells. AutoTableX-CellSuite provides 12 commands to help working with AcDbTable:

EXMERGE performs enhanced merge/unmerge to cells and provides more content control during the operation so there will not by any content data lost. This is an intelligent app in that picking a single cell will be prompted to merge with other cells, picking a merged cell will automatically unmerge it. While merging, the single cell can merge with existing merged cells.

All cell contents can be recorded and passed into single or group cells by setting from dialog.

EXADJUST provides two ways to adjust the table’s appearance to make it look nicer:

•Minimum: Apply the minimum column width and row height to all cells.

•Autofit: Adjust the cell column width and row height according to the contents. This way will make the table look nicer and better in size for reading and viewing.

EXCOLROW: Besides providing the common Delete and Insert Column/Row operations, EXCOLROW provides three options while equalizing the column width and row height:

•As maximum: Use the maximum value of column width or row height. 

•As minimum: Use the minimum value of column width or row height. 

•As average: Use the average value of column width or row height.

EXCOMBO is designed to SPLIT or COMBINE AcDbTable(s) together. This will make it easier to process multiple AcDbTables. EXCOMBO can split an AcDbTable just by picking a border line of a nested cell, and the source AcDbTable will be cut into two small AcDbTables and maintain the former location just as the source AcDbTable.

EXCOMBO provides very useful options to combine two or more AcDbTables into a big one. At least two AcDbTables are needed, the first one is the source AcDbTable and others are combined AcDbTables. You can attach the combined AcDbTable with the source one by column (attached to the right) or by row (attached to the bottom). EXCOMBO is a very intelligent app that all cells in combined AcDbTables will be re-built in the source AcDbTable including the content, properties and even the merge situation.

EXATTR is designed to skip the block dialog and directly edit the attributes values in the blocks (if they have attributes).

EXALIGN is used to set the alignment and margins to individual AcDbTable cells. EXALIGN support four different changing types:

•Clear margin: The margin will automatically be set to 0.0 

•Margin as cell text height: The margin will use the cell text height 

•Percentage of cell width/height: The margin will be calculated based on cell height (for Vertical margin) or cell width (for Horizontal margin). The value entered in Data blank will be used. Basically, it should be numbered between 0 and 100. 

•Enter margin value: We can set the real margin value in Data blank.

EXWFACT can set unique width factor to cell contents. If the new width factor is 1, EXWFACT will remove all existing width factor information on contents in cell contents.

EXANNO focuses on cell content string operations, it has three small tools:

•CharAnno: Process common character operations such as adding prefix, suffix, characters substitution etc.

•StripAnno: Can strip partial or all MTEXT format to cell contents

•SeqAnno: Help entering sequential contents such as "A-1" "A-2" "A-3"…, support basic math calculations to sequential numbers.

EXMATCH Autodesk® AutoCAD® native MATCHCELL command can only match the cell properties between destination cells and the source cell. EXMATCH directly uses it and enhances it to enable content match between cells. EXMATCH supports switching between BlockCell and TextCell types. It will automatically change the cell type to process the decent properties match.

MATCHCELL command will unmerge cells if a merged cell is indicated as destination. EXMATCH will merge the cells back after calling MATCHCELL internally.

EXHIDECELL can switch the appearance of the AcDbTable cell text content(s) simply by picking point(s) in the cell(s). The cells can be processed individually or by group.

EXHIDECELL can proceed the hide/unhide to the entire table by choosing “Visible Table” or “Hide Table” mode.

EXCELLPROP was designed to modify a few frequently used properties of cells such as color, alignment and text height and style. After setup the values, you can then apply the changes to individual cell or group of cells by pick in the cell region. Both the cell background and content color can be modified and EXCELLPROP supports automatic table adjustment after cell content height is changed.

VFCOLOR is designed to enable AutoTableX users to select the virtual-fill color without calling EXMERGE command.
