Customize message files

You can customize the messages that Tekla Structures displays in the user interface.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • To modify an .ail message file, go to the ..\Tekla Structures\<version>\messages folder.

    • To modify an .xml message file, go to the ..\Tekla Structures\<version>\messages\DotAppsStrings folder.

  2. Open the message file you want to customize using a standard text editor.
  3. Modify the message as required.
  4. Save the message file.

Example: customize a message file

In this example, you will modify a message that Tekla Structures uses for near side plates in drawings. You want Tekla Structures to display (NS) instead of (N/S).

  1. Go to the ..\Tekla Structures\<version>\messages folder.

  2. Open by_number.ail using a standard text editor.

    The by_number.ail file contains both prompts and default texts that Tekla Structures uses in drawings.

  3. Browse to the following section:

    string by_number_msg_no_675



    entry = ("enu", "(N/S)");


  4. Change (N/S) to (NS) in the entry row.

  5. Save and close the file.
