Use the following advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups

In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.

In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.

to show or hide bolts that are hidden from view by other parts, in single part, assembly, and general arrangement drawings. The default values are shown here:

  • XS_DRAW_BOLT_HIDDEN_LINES_IN_SINGLE_DRAWINGS=AS_PART

  • XS_DRAW_BOLT_HIDDEN_LINES_IN_ASSEMBLY_DRAWINGS=AS_PART

  • XS_DRAW_BOLT_HIDDEN_LINES_IN_GA_DRAWINGS=FALSE

Possible values are:

  • AS_PART : uses part’s hidden line visibility settings.

  • TRUE : always shows hidden bolts.

  • FALSE : does not show hidden bolts.

Note:

Tekla Structures sets the way the bolt hidden lines are shown when the bolt is added to a drawing, usually when you create the drawing or a drawing viewview that includes selected model objects or an area in the model, that is represented in a drawing

A drawing view is a container for model and drawing objects.

A drawing can include several drawing views, which usually are two-dimensional views, plane views, to the model.

Examples of drawing views in Tekla Structures include main views, section views, single-part views, and 3D views.

. The hidden lines setting of the bolts cannot be changed afterwards.

One way to change the setting in an old drawing is to create a new drawing view using the desired bolt hidden lines settings.
