If you set the advanced option XS_MARK_INTELLIGENT_ POST_FREEPLACE_NEARBY to TRUE (default), Tekla Structures first places the marks in drawings avoiding crossing leader lines, and after that runs the place nearby command, which ensures that the mark locations follow the protection settings. If you set this advanced option to FALSE , the crossing mark check is performed, but the place nearby command is not run, so some of the protection settings may not be followed.
Note that you need to set the advanced option XS_TRY_TO_KEEP_LOCATION_IN_FREEPLACING to TRUE (Default) for the advanced option XS_MARK_INTELLIGENT_POST_FREEPLACE_NEARBY to work.
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).
