To preserve the integrity of the multi-user modelmodel that is used for collaboration and that is opened in multi-user mode
, Tekla Structures locks the master modelmulti-user model from and to which information is fetched and saved in multi-user mode, and into which Tekla Structures merges changes that individual users make in the working models
It is not possible to work on the master model.
when a user:
Opens the multi-user model
Saves a working modelmulti-user model that an individual user works on in multi-user mode
Working model is a local copy of a master model and the user’s current model.

Runs numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement
In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.
When you try to save the model that is locked, Tekla Structures gives you an option to queue for saving until the model is unlocked. Tekla Structures keeps on retrying saving every 15 seconds until the operation is completed or until you cancel the operation.
