For some time, I have to cope with display problems in RSTAB and RFEM that make it difficult to work with the software. It mainly affects the display of results. Depending on the zoom in and out, the lines are extended, dotted or absolutely not displayed.
Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?
AnswerIt might be advisable to (de)activate the hardware acceleration.In RSTAB and RFEM, you can activate or deactivate the hardware acceleration (OpenGL) by using the menu 'Options' → 'Program Options' in the 'Graphics' dialog tab.
In addition, an improved smoothing (antialiasing) can be set in the same dialog box to prevent the edge effect. Both options are only activated after restarting the program.It could also be a problem that the graphics card driver is outdated. Under certain circumstances, this may lead to problems when using RSTAB and RFEM. I would, therefore, ask you to update the driver.
AnswerIn the viewer mode, all results, including the module results in the printout report, are available to you.However, there are the following restrictions:It is not possible to carry out any calculation, editing, saving, as well as import and export. Additionally, no modules can be started.
AnswerThe discrepancy is probably caused by rounding differences of the nodes. Adjust the X-coordinates of the nodes accordingly.The function 'Regenerate Model' could also be helpful, you can find it in Tools.
AnswerFor some parameters, additional [Details] buttons are available in the Display Properties. It is necessary to open a new dialog box to scale e.g. the distance or size of the object to the dimensions of the entire model.
AnswerThe font size of the Title and Max/Min Info can be set in the Display Properties. To use this function, select Options → Display Properties → Edit in the menu.
