How to customize the Inquire dialog box?

All of the Inquire dialog boxes for the model objects: parts, assemblies, bolts, welds, cast units, etc... are read from the relative inquire template.
Typically those templates are found inside your environment folder, if you search for the keyword Inquire then you will be able to find them:

As you see above there is an inquire template for each model objectobject that is represented in a model

A model object is either created in a model or imported into it.

, for customizing anyone of them is simply by editing that particular inquire template using the template editortool in Tekla Structures that is used for creating and modifying templates to be used in drawings and reports


Note: if you couldn't find those inquire templates inside your environment folder then try to find them inside the common environmentTekla Structures environment that forms a basis for other environments

The common environment is included in the software installation and includes the global settings, macros, symbols, and fonts, for example. The common environment and global settings form the basis for all other environments.
