As powerful and useful as components can be, this video also serves as a red- flag indicating serious problems with the UI experience. I'm confident the design team can create a UI that is intuitive and easy to use, but it will require a serious overhaul and quite a bit of hard work.

Thank you for the feedback. I have forwarded your comment to the team responsible for user inteface design.

Thank you Tommi for the encouraging response.

I know there is no easy way to overhaul a collection of independent components. It would be a huge undertaking.
Nonetheless, as the included components are such a large part of the daily user experience, an overhaul here could refresh, unify and modernize Tekla where it matters most.

Thank you Darrick for putting so much consideration into this. You have very good points and it seems also a realistic idea about the size of the challenge.
