Modify view-level drawing properties

You can modify the view-level drawing properties after you have created the drawing. Most of the properties that a single-part, assembly and cast unit drawing have are specified for each of the drawing views separately already before creating a drawing in the automatic drawing properties. General arrangement drawings do not have automatic view properties, and the view properties can only be modified in an open drawing.

The changes you make in view properties apply only to the view that you have selected to modify.

For a list of view properties and their values, see View properties in drawings.

  1. Open the drawing.
  2. Double-click a drawing view frame to open the drawing view properties dialog box.
  3. The check boxes in the options tree are off by default. When you touch a property, for example, select an option in the panel, Tekla Structures adds a check mark to the check box next to the option in the option tree.
  4. Make the necessary changes.
  5. Click Modify when you are ready with the changes.

The view changes according to the changes that you made in the drawing view properties.


Some of the changes in you make require a drawing recreation. For more information, see Recreation of drawings.
