Dimensioning: General

Use to define whether changed dimension text and moved dimension points are highlighted in associative drawings.

When set to TRUE (default), Tekla Structures highlights the changed dimension text and the moved dimension points in updated associative drawings.

Tekla Structures highlights the changes in the following ways:

  • A change symbolgraphic that Tekla Structures creates in a drawing and that indicates that an associative annotation object has been changed

    Change symbols are created for dimensions, marks, and associative notes, for example.

    Examples of change symbols include mark change symbols and dimension change symbols.

    (by default a cloud) is drawn around the old point, the new point and the dimension values. It is displayed only when you select the dimension.

  • An arrow is drawn from the old point to the new point.

This advanced option is user specific and the setting is saved in options.bin under user folder. Restart Tekla Structures to activate the new value.
