Drawing Properties

Use this advanced option to change the line type of the part center lines in drawings. Enter an integer value from 1 to 7. To see the center line type change, close the drawing and open it again.




Solid line

2 - 7

Dotted lines.

The default value is 4 (dash-and-dot line).

If you enter a value that is lower than 1 or higher than 7 , Tekla Structures uses the default value 4.


To see what the line types look like, see the Hidden lines > Type options on the Appearance tab in Part Properties.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
