Model View

Set this advanced option to TRUE to allow view windows to be moved only within the Tekla Structures window.

Set this advanced option to FALSE to allow view windows to be moved anywhere on the Windows desktop. This gives you more workspace on the screen, because view windows move to the front when you click on them and open dialog boxes remain behind the views. It also allows you to enlarge Tekla Structures windows to fill the entire desktop.

The default value is TRUE.

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.


This advanced option also affects drawing windows. Use the advanced options XS_MDIZOOMPARENT and XS_MDIBASICVIEWPARENT to control connection and default views and zoom views .
