Paul Kieloch Display Settings RFEM RSTAB

I have changed the background color to "White" and now it is not possible to see the "Values on Surfaces" anymore. Why? How can I control a proper function of this?


Presumably, you have changed the background color to "White" in the "Standard with black background". Now, a white text for the "Values on Surfaces" is displayed on a white background. That is not correct and the text is therefore not visible.

RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8 provides the "Configurations" for this application case. To open the Configuration Manager, use the "Options" menu. See Figure 01.

If you want to set a white background, simply double-click the entry "Standard with white background". The background color then changes to white. However, not only the background color will be changed but also the colors for all other settings, so that the display of the entire program is adjusted to the white background color. The problem of "white text on a white background" is thus avoided.

If you accidentally set the configuration inconveniently, you can reset it to the default values by clicking the button shown in Figure 02.
