To create your customized Tekla Structures configurations and use them in different projects and on different computers:
- Get familiar with the different configuration files and some basic ways to change how Tekla Structures works, see Tekla Structures setup guidelines for administrators.
- You can use Trimble's default settings as well as create your company's general settingssettings that are used to control the general functions of the software
For example, autosave interval and mouse settings are general settings in Tekla Structures. General settings can be saved for each model or as a standard file.
In Tekla Structures, general settings are defined in the Options dialog box.
and project-specific settings, see Environment, company and project settings for administrators.
Many of the configurations you distribute are closely linked to working in Tekla Structures and you find the instructions related to the configuration files you can distribute as part of the documentation of each featurepart of Tekla Structures functionality that is maintained and owned by Trimble Solutions and that is included in the Tekla Structures installation
