New documentation structure

The user documentation has been reorganized in Tekla Structures 2018. The content is largely the same as before, but there are now fewer, more general categories to choose from on the first level of the table of contents.

All first-level categories now contain a short introduction or workflow. The same structure is used in the online Tekla User Assistanceonline help and self-support service for Tekla Structures

Tekla User Assistance includes instructions, support articles, and instructional videos, and it offers a possibility for feedback.

service, in the offline help package and in the PDF documentation.

Here in Tekla User Assistance, you can browse the main categories in the structure on the Product Guides section start page. You can drill down further by using the drop-down lists above the page title or the links to other pages in the current section, which are displayed on the right side or the bottom of each Product Guide page depending on the width of your browser window.
