Tips for basic tasks
Here we provide useful hints and tips that help you use the Tekla Structural Designer user interface and its basic features more efficiently.
Use the tooltip for input in a command
When you need to specify a distance or pick a point, a tooltip appears, displaying the current value.
- Move the mouse pointer to the required point and click the point to use it.
- Press F2 to type an exact number, and press Enter.
Undo a command
Cancel a command or go back to the previous prompt
|Cancel a command||
|Go back to the previous command prompt||
Selecting another command also cancels the current command.
The parallel grid line command consists of four steps. Hence, four consecutive command prompts are displayed.
The grid line is created after the fourth prompt. After that, prompt 2 is automatically redisplayed.
At this point, you can either continue to create additional lines parallel to the original, or go back to the first prompt by pressing Esc.
Then, you can either select a new reference line and continue again, or cancel the command by pressing Esc again.
