XS_​DRAWING_​UPDATE_​VIEW_​PLACING

Category

Drawing Properties

Use to control how the view placing works. If the views do not fit on the screen after scaling, Tekla Structures increases the sheet size using the layout properties if autosizing is enabled ( Layout > Drawing size > Size definition mode > Autosize ). Use this advanced option together with XS_​INTELLIGENT_​DRAWING_​ALLOWED.

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).
