Is there any possibility in RSTAB to change the direction of a particular force component on all available nodal loads?

Answer

Yes, you can quickly change the direction of a particular force component on all available nodal loads by using the navigator or the input table.

In the navigator, double-click the entry of the relevant nodal forces (nodal loads) to open the nodal force dialog box "Edit Nodal Load" where you can assign the component to another direction.

In input table 3.1, it is also possible to modify the direction for all available nodal forces, for example by means of the block function. First, select the column of the nodal forces and copy it with the key combination "Ctrl+C". Then, go to the relevant table column and insert the entries from the clipboard (key combination "Ctrl+V"). If there are values already available, it is necessary to delete them previously.
