This advanced option can be set in initialization files.

This advanced option is no longer recommended for customer use.

This advanced option affects the origin of the drawing when you export drawings into DWG format. By default, it is set to TRUE. This means that in export, Tekla Structures tries to keep the origin of the main viewdrawing view that shows all parts in an assembly, cast unit, or single-part drawing from the selected viewing direction

Main view can be front view, top view, back view, or bottom view. The user can create several main views.


If you set this advanced option to FALSE , the origin (0,0) is set to the bottom left corner of the drawing when the drawing is exported.

This advanced option is system specific and is read from teklastructures.ini. Generally, there is no need to modify system-specific settings. Do not modify them if you are not an administrator.
