Set the numbering so it always uses 4 digits

Question:
Is there any way we can set the 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.

so it always uses 4 digits, for example, a P1 plate(1) part that represents a flat structure

(1) In some contexts, for example in analysis, the term plate object may be used to refer to plates.

(2) plate that represents a steel structure

(2) Plate is mainly used as a connection piece or as a floor plate.

would be P0001 or a M215 column would be M0215?

Answer:
Part, assembly, cast unit and rebar numbering formats can be controlled with 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.

:

XS_PART_POSITION_NUMBER_FORMAT_STRING
XS_ASSEMBLY_POSITION_NUMBER_FORMAT_STRING
XS_CAST_UNIT_POSITION_NUMBER_FORMAT_STRING
XS_REBAR_POSITION_NUMBER_FORMAT_STRING

By entering .3 after the position numberidentifier that is assigned to all similar parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement

Position number consists of a prefix, separator, and running number. The prefix is part of the position number, identifying a numbering series. The running number is part of the position number, and is the assigned number in the numbering series, based on the start number. The separator is an optional character, such as a slash, that separates the prefix and the running number.

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

In the US, the term piece mark or ship mark is used to refer to a position number.

you will get three digits:

XS_ASSEMBLY_POSITION_NUMBER_FORMAT_STRING=%%ASSEMBLY_PREFIX%%/%%ASSEMBLY_POS.3%%

After changing these settings, you need to restart Tekla Structures to get the changes visible.
Do not change these settings if you have already created drawings.
