Why is my linearly variable surface load not represented in a triangular shape, although I have set the minimum load value to zero?


The loads are always displayed with the relative limit settings.
In this way, it is ensured that the loads on very small structures, but also on very large structures can still be displayed reasonably.

You can individually adjust the relative limit settings by using the display properties.
In the attached video, the reduction of the minimum relative limit for the load value display allows for the user-defined form of the graphic.
