Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
AnswerYes, this option is available.To do this, switch to the Display navigator and right-click any entry. A shortcut menu appears where you can find the "Dlubal Standard" entry. See Figure 01.When you execute the "Dlubal Standard" command, the settings in the Display navigator are reset to the default values.
AnswerIn RFEM and RSTAB, you can define user-defined views and visibilities. The remaining or hidden structure is displayed in the background by default.It is possible to deactivate this option in the project navigator so that only the selected partial view is visible and the rest of the structure is completely hidden.
AnswerResult values can be rotated by an arbitrary angle (see Figure 1). With this setting, all result values are rotated. So far, you can not define different orientations for single walls and ceilings.
AnswerPresumably, you have changed the background color to "white" in the "Default configuration with a black background". Now, a white text for the "Values on Surfaces" is displayed on a white background. This is not correct and the text is 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, you can simply double-click the entry "Standard configuration with white background". The background color changes to white. Not only the background color 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 "white text on a white background" is thus avoided.If you have accidentally set the configuration to an unfavorable value, you can reset it to the default values by clicking the button shown in Figure 02.
AnswerYes, this is possible with the Configuration Manager.The display properties are a component of the currently active configuration. The active configuration is displayed in bold font in the Configuration Manager (Options → Configuration Manager) (see Figure 01). You can easily export the changes to the display properties of this configuration to a file with the two buttons (see Figure 01) and import them again to another PC.If you use RSTAB, you receive a configuration file with the extension ".rsconfig" during the export. For RFEM, you receive a ".rfconfig" file.
AnswerNo, unfortunately it is not possible the display properties for several categories (eg. example the text size for the load values of all load types) at once. This must be done for each category (eg. example Load type) can be set individually.But if you have set the display properties once for a configuration on a PC, you can simply transfer them via the configuration manager to another PC. See the FAQ 2982 on the following link.
AnswerThe staborientierung of the bars can be in the Project Navigator - Show in the category "Model -> Activate rods ". Alternatively, one could also indicate the orientation of the beam via the rod axis systems, since the x-axis of the rod follows the same orientation.
AnswerIn this case you should first check the result panel. Sometimes the display factor for the bearing forces is "0". Once this is increased, the arrows should be displayed again.
AnswerIn the menu bar of the program under the entry "Table -> Settings "various adjustments to the table can be made. This also allows the font and size to be adjusted as required (see Figure 1).
AnswerIf the colors are set according to the "Material" setting in the Display Navigator, then the full material name is displayed in the panel by default, ie Material Name + Standard (see Fig. 01). The full material designation is also displayed in the tables (Table 1.3) of RSTAB and RFEM.If you only want the material designations in the panel and tables, you can deactivate the full material designation in the "Program Options" dialog (see Fig. 02).
