Create and modify marks, notes, texts, symbols and links in drawings
You can add many kinds of annotation objects in your drawings, such as marks, associative notes, texts, and links. Some of these are associative and some independent.
Associative annotation objects
Associative objects update according to the changes made in a building object in the model. Dimensions, marks, and notes are associative.
In addition to the automatic marks and dimensions that you already may have in a drawing, you can add new ones and modify their properties:
You can also delete marks for parts and reinforcement.
Independent annotation objects
Independent annotation objects are not linked or connected to the Tekla Structures model in any way. For example, texts, DWG/DXF files, symbols, section marks, detail marks, revision marks, links and hyperlinks are all independent annotation objects.
Independent objects will also become associative if you snap to a building object when you create them, because then they will get associativity points. For example, in texts, the content does not change when the model changes but the associativity point may change. Another example is a line: if you snap to a part edge when you create a line, the line will get an associativity point and move with the part if the part changes.
You can only add texts, section marks, detail marks, DWG/DXF files, links, hyperlinks, revision marks and symbols in an open drawing, and modify the properties of the added ones:
