User-defined attributes in numbering
You can set in the objects.inp file whether a user-defined attribute affects numbering or not. Tekla Structures treats parts and reinforcing bars as different, and therefore numbers them differently, if the values of the user-defined attribute differ.
Only user-defined attributes of parts and reinforcement can affect numbering. User-defined attributes of other objects, such as phases, projects and drawings do not affect numbering.
If you want Tekla Structures to consider a user-defined attribute when numbering, set the
special_flag option of the attribute to
yes in the
Part attributes section of objects.inp. For reinforcement, you need to set
yes also in the
Reinforcing bar attributes section. Tekla Structures assigns different numbers to parts or reinforcement that are otherwise identical but have different values for this user-defined attribute.
If you want Tekla Structures to ignore a user-defined attribute when numbering, set the
special_flag option to
no in objects.inp.
