Default Global settings exist in Tekla Structural Designer for controlling many aspects of the software operation, such as the analysis, design, report and drawings.
To save editing time on a model-by-model basis, we recommend that the global settings are configured to suit your needs. This way, you do not need to change the model settings every time you create a new model.
Settings specific to the current model
When you create a new model file, the above global settings are copied to the model file to become the Model settings, Analysis settings, Design settings, Slab deflection settings, Footfall assessment settings and Drawing settings specific to that model and that model only.
