Change symbols in drawings

Tekla Structures highlights the marks and dimension marks that have changed due to changes in the model, and dimension points that have been moved. Tekla Structures also highlights the changed angle dimensions, level marks, and associative notes.

Tekla Structures highlights the changes in the following way:

  • A change symbolgraphic that Tekla Structures creates in a drawing and that indicates that an associative annotation object has been changed

    Change symbols are created for dimensions, marks, and associative notes, for example.

    Examples of change symbols include mark change symbols and dimension change symbols.

    (by default, a cloud) is drawn around the old point, the new point and the dimension values, or around the changed mark or note.

  • An arrow is drawn from the old dimension pointpoint that Tekla Structures or the user has used for dimensioning

    to the new one.

There are some advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups

In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.

In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.
