Tables in drawing layout

Tables are Template Editor templates added in Tekla Structures drawings containing information on model objects. In Template Editor, the tables are referred to as graphical templates.

The term table refers to various elements in a drawing layout, such as:

  • Tables (such as revision tables)

  • Title blocks

  • Lists (such as part and bolt lists)

  • General notes

  • Key plans

  • DWG/DXF files

If you change the model, Tekla Structures updates the contents of the affected drawings and tables created in Template Editor. The contents of the tables are filled in by Tekla Structures at run time.

The available graphical templates are read from the following folders in the following order, and shown in the Available tables list in the Layout editor side pane:

  • Template folder (XS_TEMPLATE_DIRECTORY)
  • Current model folder
  • Project folder (XS_PROJECT)
  • Firm folder (XS_FIRM)
  • Environment-specific system templates folder (XS_TEMPLATE_DIRECTORY_SYSTEM)
  • System folder (XS_SYSTEM)
