Distribute customized property pane settings by using a project, firm, or environment folder

Company administrators can distribute the customized property pane settings to other users in the company. Place the PropertyPaneSettings.xml file in a folder called \PropertyPane in a project, firm, or environment folder.

  1. Customize the property pane settings that you want to share.

    The property pane settings are saved in the PropertyPaneSettings.xml file, in the ..\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\UI\PropertyPane\ folder.

    If you cannot find the folder, ensure that you are able to view the hidden files and folders on your computer.

  2. Create a folder called \PropertyPane either in your company's project folder, firm folder, or in the system folder.
  3. Copy the PropertyPaneSettings.xml file to the \PropertyPane folder.
  4. Restart Tekla Structures.

    The file in ..\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\UI\PropertyPane\ has the highest priority in the search order, and after that Tekla Structures uses the default search order.

    If the PropertyPaneSettings.xml file is placed in several different folder locations, Tekla Structures reads the settings from different folders and merges them.
