Respected Sir,
why i can't pick snap point while i'm using direct modification? as before in previous version it was possible.

by Tekla User Assistance

When you use the direct modification tools in Tekla Structures 20.0, the snap switches are off by default to make it easier to drag handles to any location. To use the snap switches, hold down the Shift key while dragging. Note that in previous versions you used Shift to override the snap switches.
