Prevent automatic drawing updates and recreation

There are some ways you can prevent drawings from being updated and/or recreated.

  • Freezeto prevent Tekla Structures from updating annotation objects and certain drawing view properties in a drawing when it updates the drawing as the model changes

    When a drawing is frozen, only part geometry is updated when the model changes.

    the drawings where you do not want to update all associative objects on top of the drawing views. The building objects (parts, bolts, welds, etc) are always updated in frozen drawings.

  • Lockto prevent unwanted action in a model or a drawing

    It is possible to lock model objects, reference models, and drawings, for example.

    the drawings that you do not want to update.

  • If you update a drawing that has not been modified , the drawing is recreated. Drawings are automatically recreated unless the drawing has been edited and then saved, or the drawing has been issued using the Issue functionality in the Drawing List. Use the advanced XS_RECREATE_UNMODIFIED_DRAWINGS to control the recreation of unmodified drawings.

  • To prevent Tekla Structures from automatically updating drawings if the model changes, set the advanced option XS_INTELLIGENT_DRAWING_ALLOWED to FALSE.
