When displaying a slab from above, the free rectangular loads have no hatching although they have been activated in Display → Rendering → Loads. Unfortunately, this is not ideal for the display in the printout report. Can you help me?


In comparison with a "normal" surface load, the free rectangular loads have the disadvantage that the load does not graphically get a "cover," and thus the load distribution is not clearly recognizable in the graphic printout.

You can use the display of load distribution in Project Navigator - Results: Thus, the 2D FE elements will be graphically colored, and the corresponding result values will be displayed in the adjacent color panel.
