The Table Properties window allows you to show/edit table properties. To display this window select a single table in the Floor Plan , Table Plan or Schematic panes and select Edit>Properties or the equivalent Main tool bar button.
Name is the name of the table. You an change this to anything you like. The name doesn't have to be unique and can be blank. To display the table name as 2 lines, with the second line in italics use a ** separator, for example:
Set Angle to the desired angle of the table in the Floor Plan and Table Plan panes.
Select solid, gradient or texture to choose the colour, gradient or texture of the table in the Floor Plan and Table Plan panes. This overrides any table colour set for the pane in the Fonts and colours window. Click Default to set the table colour back to the default.
Shape is the shape of the table. The available shapes of table are:
Seats is the number of seats. For a circular or head table you specify the total number of seats. For a banquet table you specify the number of seats across. For a rectangular table you specify the number of seats across and the number of seats down. For a custom table you specify the number of seats on each of the 4 sides.
Note For a square table create a rectangular table and set the number of seats across and down the same. You can specify a table with no seats for a cake, gift or serving table - it will not be shown in the Table Chart pane.
Size is the size of the table. Check the auto check box to automatically size the table according to the number of seats and the seat size (as set in the Dimensions window). Uncheck the auto check box to set your own table size.
Note The automatic table size is calculated to avoid gaps and overlaps between seats, partly on aesthetic grounds. Click here to find out about 'industry standard' table sizes.
If you have a circular table bigger than the auto size you can uncheck space seats evenly to group all the seats together. This is useful for 'sweetheart' or 'cabaret' style seating.
VIP is used to designate tables for VIPs to sit at. The automatic assignment will attempt to seat VIPs on VIP tables.
Notes can be used to store any relevant notes for the table, e.g. details of table decorations. Click on Stamp >> to add a time and date stamped comment to the top of the Notes.
