Tekla Structures


Category in Advanced options dialog box: Modeling Properties

Defines the snapping mode Tekla Structures uses by default. Set to RELATIVE (default), ABSOLUTE, or GLOBAL.

In the relative snapping mode, the coordinates you enter in the Enter a Numeric Location dialog box as such without any prefix are relative to the last position picked.

In the absolute snapping mode, the coordinates are based on the origin of the work plane.

In the global snapping mode, the coordinates are based on the global origin and the global x and y directions.

This advanced option is user specific and the setting is saved in options.bin under the user folder, for example, in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\UserSettings. Restart Tekla Structures to activate the new value.
