Initialization files are used for defining Tekla Structures start-up parameters and default settings. They contain advanced options that are used for configuring Tekla Structures for different standards, and for your or your company’s style of working.
Tekla Structures automatically creates the necessary initialization files during installation. The number of initialization files it creates depends on how many Tekla Structures environments you have installed.
If you are defining a switch for an advanced option in an .ini file, use double percent signs %%xxx%% around the switch. If you are defining a switch in the Advanced Options dialog box, use single percent signs %xxx% around the switch. For example, %%BOLT_NUMBER%%*D%%HOLE.DIAMETER%% for the advanced option XS_BOLT_MARK_STRING_FOR_SIZE.
