How to remove top in form face?

by Anu from Tekla User Assistance

To remove the red highlighting from the model view, right-click the view and select 'Update window' from the pop-up menu.

To modify a concrete part so that it does not have the top-in-form face defined, go to the part's user-defined attributes and select the "blank" option for the 'Top in form face' user-defined attribute.
