View Scale in Imperial

The extension allows to show the scale factor in imperial format in view title label. This works only when the model is created with imperial environment only.

How to Locate

After installation, the 'View Scale in Imperial' is available in the 'applicationpart of Tekla Structures functionality that is developed in order to extend the capability of Tekla Structures but that is not included in the Tekla Structures installation

Click the icon ‘ViewScaleInImperial’ from 'Application and Component' in model. There is a option to update all drawings or selected drawings, it updates all view titles inside the drawing. If view scale is changed or drawing re-created then we need to re-run this tool again to get the updated values. This won't work with model created in metric environments and gives the message for the same.
