Quickly add headers to an AutoCAD table.

Frequent tipster Leonid Nemirovsky shares a trick to help you add headers to an AutoCAD table with a quick copy-and-paste maneuver.

"If your table looks like the one below and you need to add headings to the second part quickly, just follow these steps.

Add two more rows (or as many as needed to accommodate all your table headings) as shown below.

Highlight them and right-click, choose Copy, then highlight two rows as shown below and select Paste.

All you need now is to just adjust the width of rows, if necessary, and you are done."

Notes from Brian Benton, Cadalyst tip reviewer: AutoCAD tables are very powerful and can do many things that a regular spreadsheet program can do. In fact, if you have ever used a spreadsheet program you will find that AutoCAD tables share many of the same functions and methods for working with cells, rows, columns, and formulas.

Why not just automate it by switching "Repeat top labels" to "yes" using the Properties palette (under "Table Breaks")?
