In short: Tables is your perfect Autodesk® Revit® companion, an easy and familiar one stop shopping solution to boost your productivity in Revit. Simple, yet powerful!

General Usage Instructions

Your perfect Revit companion: Simple, yet powerful.

With Tables you can easily import existing Revit schedules or - and this is actually where the fun starts - generate your own schedules.

Creating your own schedule in Tables is straightforward and more or less similar to the Revit workflow. Select any cell in Tables and your schedule will be inserted from there. Then click the command "New Schedule"and a selection dialog opens, in which you can select the desired category or several categories. After that you just need to choose your fields, set filters and groupings and that’s basically it – it’s really simple.

Tables: Spreadsheets inside Revit. And a lot more.

Commands

Installation/Uninstallation

Note: Tables uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer). 

Run the .exe file. It's that easy!

Uninstallation via Windows Settings Panel. But you won't ;)

2022.2.1

New Features: - Advanced filter We have significantly improved our filter. Now you can create simple AND or OR filters, but also complex combinations of them if you want (check out the “Boolean algebra” article on Wikipedia to see the endless possibilities… ;) ) - We added units in table columns Units can now be set independently of the global settings - New Feature Parameters for every model elements: survey and project coordinates of location - New Feature Parameters for Family Instances: Mirrored and HandFlipped - New Feature Parameter: Number in Warnings (Special List) - New Feature Parameter: CompassDirection for FamilyInstances and Room Boundary Lists (Special List) - New Feature Parameter “North Arrow Image” for adding a true north arrow image to your worksheet (can be fine-tuned in the settings dialog) - New command for Smart Reports: Highlight the corresponding element of a report page in the model - New data sources: We added room parameter datasource for spaces (ARC <-> MEP Space) So now you can access the corresponding parameters - And finally: We added a close workbook command in our system menu, since you wanted it ;) Changes and Improvements: - When dealing with groups we now check the readonly status when applying changes - We have refined the filter type “Has Attribute” and added a new “Has Value” filter type. “Has Attribute” checks, if the given parameter is bound to the category; “Has Value” checks, if there is a value set to the given parameter - We added a checkbox "Hide unchecked Categories" to our categories dialog to give a clearer view of your selected categories. - There now is a shortcut to the settings dialog in the upper right corner right next to the Help- and Info-Buttons - Removed calculation attributes from the selection list for sorting or grouping - We added a button "Save As Preset" in Table Tools contextual ribbon tab in order to store your selected Table definition as a preset - We fine-tuned the “Element on Floorplan'' image settings and added the new option to select a filled region type to use as a “Marker” to highlight the given element. BugFixed As always, we have done a lot of housekeeping, thanks for your valid help and feedback: - Invisible column caused the critical error on updating columns - Fixed the logging error - Fixed the error when the element in the warnings has no category - Fixed the GUI error on copying to project - Fixed: ignore the parameters which cause exceptions when retrieving them from the given element - Fixed: Error occurred on refreshing a report - Fixed: No selection list in the creation list - Fixed: DemoImages in ReportPages are not removed

2022.1.6

This is our biggest update yet! We needed to change the internal structure of our format, so new Tables xlsx files can’t be opened in older Tables version prior to Tables 2022.1. Therefore, please make sure your entire team is updated to the latest version. • New Features: ◦ Smart Reports You can now document your model in a new way: one element on one sheet based on a template worksheet. You can use this function for example to automatically create “Roombooks” (model based room programs) but it also can be used for complex calculations for one element per sheet ◦ New Smart Creation Functionality: Spaces Creation With this new feature you can automatically create non placed MEP spaces - just like rooms, with all the preset data you want to add ◦ Grouped Fields Summary fields calculating one value for one cell, good for Smart Reports, great for creating simple dashboards ◦ New Feature Parameter: Element Image on Floor Plan (for Smart Reports only) The “Element Image on Floor Plan” - Feature Parameter will generate an Image of the element based on a floor plan (requires settings in the global settings dialog) ◦ New Feature Parameter: Key Plan Image (for Smart Reports only) The “Key Plan Image” - Feature Parameter will generate an Overview-Image of your entire floor with the specific element highlighted (requires settings in the global settings dialog) ◦ New Feature Parameter “Revisions on Sheet” In a Sheet list you can use our new Feature Parameter “Revisions on Sheet” to manage your revisions manually, just use a right click and select the revisions you want to apply -> big timesaver! ◦ New Special List: Warnings You can now manage and analyse your Revit warnings really easily. You can even add a rating to them to get a clearer overview of them (requires settings in the global settings dialog) ◦ New Special List: Room Boundaries For documenting and checking room programs ◦ New Feature Parameter “VersionGuid” (For Revit 2021+) ◦ New Feature Parameter: ObjectType for our beloved Geeks ◦ New Parameter Source for our MEP friends: We added Host & Host-Type Parameters for insulation-lining based elements ◦ New Parameter Source for Geeks: SuperComponent- and SuperComponentType-Parameters for Nested Families to get the parameters of the main family element ◦ We added the calculation type “Min...Max” ◦ New Advanced Command: “Reload with demo data” Great for creating templates for your team, since now you can deploy them with “dummy” data so your team won’t get confused with old project data ◦ New Command "Add Empty Column" in the Tables Edit dialog You can use empty columns for spacers to structure your schedule ◦ Our Filters now supports string/text comparing ◦ We now support all Microsoft Excel workbook file formats ◦ Et, enfin et surtout, pour nos amis français: Tables est maintenant aussi disponible en français ;) • Changes and Improvements ◦ Contextual ribbon pages: Since we are adding more and more new and cool stuff to Tables, we have cleaned up the interface a bit and added contextual ribbons to simplify the UI ◦ Categories can be changed subsequently Heureka! You can now change the selected categories of your schedule afterwards, add new ones or remove existing ones ◦ Multiple tables per worksheet (great for Smart Reports) ◦ As always: we further improved the formatting, this time the evaluation of border formats ◦ We improved the contextual help, you’ll find links in the tooltips to our support center ◦ We implemented a better logging mechanism. In case of an exception you can easily open, view and share the log file via our global Settings dialog ◦ minor UI changes and workflow improvements • Bugs Fixed: ◦ A lot of housekeeping has been done, as always thanks for your help and feedback.
