How can I display the free loads only within a certain area?


Unlike the structural elements, it is generally not possible to mark and hide loads by means of selection.

In the Display navigator, only loads of the same type (such as Node Loads, Member Loads, Free Polygon Loads, ...) can be activated or deactivated for displaying. 
Loads are always object-related. If a part of the structure is hidden, the corresponding loads are also hidden.

A special feature is the free loads. If they are not explicitly assigned to specific surfaces, they are always displayed - even if the loaded surfaces are hidden. Therefore, it is recommended to assign the free loads only to the corresponding surfaces.
The quickest way to do this is to use tables 3.6 - 3.11.

Note: For the 2D model types, it is not possible to assign the free loads to special surfaces and they are thus always displayed for the entire structure.
