Using Custom Tables

Video Tip - Go to the 7:21 mark of the video to view information on adding custom tables to Floorplans and manipulating them.

If you cannot find the correct dimensions of a round, rectangular or square table in our standard element library, you can create your own custom-sized table and even save it in your Favorites library so you can easily select and use it for future event floor plans.

NOTE: If you need to create a custom element that is not a table, you should use the Shapes element library to create a custom item based on a shape. See the Using Shapes in Foor Plans and Creating Custom Items article.
