Give titles to drawings

In addition to the drawing name, you can give titles for your drawings. Tekla Structures shows the title in the Drawing List and in drawing and report templates, and also in print output file names. You can define up to three titles to use in drawing templates.

  1. In the Drawing List , right-click the drawing and select Properties.
  2. Enter the titles.
  3. Click Modify.

    Close the Drawing List and open it again to see the change.


If you want to customize your print file names and use title values instead of drawing names in them , you can define that the title entered in this dialog box is used in the print file name. To do this, enter the value %TPL:TITLE1% (or %TPL:TITLE2% or %TPL:TITLE3% ) for an advanced option XS_DRAWING_PLOT_FILE_NAME_G (or _W , _A , _M or _C depending on the drawing type) through File menu > Settings > Advanced options > Printing .
