Move a load end or corner using handles

Tekla Structures indicates the ends and corners of loads with handles. You can use these handles to move load ends and corners when you do not want to use direct modificationfunction that activates the mode where the model objects can be modified by using handles

Direct modification enables additional handles and modification options.


  1. Ensure that the Direct modification switch is not active.
  2. Select a load to display its handles.

    When you select a load, the handles are magenta. For line loads, the handle of the first end is yellow.

  3. Click the handle you want to move.

    Tekla Structures highlights the handle.

  4. Move the handle like any other object in Tekla Structures.

    If you have the Drag & drop check box selected in File menu > Settings > Switches , just drag the handle to a new position.
