Note You can also view this tutorial as a movie on our website.

The next step to creating your table plan is to decide who should sit near (or not near) whom.

Click on the flowarrow2_162.Proximity button in the Task tool bar. Look at the heart_16Proximity pane:


The heart_16 means that these guests should be placed next to each other. The smile_16 means that these guests should be placed near to each other, either next to or on the same table, but lower priority than heart_16.

Let us assume you have been asked not to seat Jason and Natasha next to each other. Click on the cell where the column for Jason and the row for Natasha intersect. Pull down the drop-down list and select sad_16not next to.


Notice that the corresponding row for Jason and column for Natasha changes to keep the table symmetric.

Click on the mac_reveal button at the top of the pane to show additional options. Select by group from the Show drop-down list. The heart_16Proximity pane now shows just one group at a time.


The proximity will become important when we start assigning guests to seats.
