Advantages of User-Defined Views
Tips & Tricks
RFEM and RSTAB offer many display options in the Display navigator. They can differ greatly depending on their function. To make certain changes, you sometimes have to click several times. If you want to optimize your work, you can create user‑defined views. In these views, you can save all specified settings. The following example illustrates this principle.
There is an overall view of a structure as well as views for each frame with the respective grid axis. To switch between the view of the overall structure to the view of frame A, you need to make adjustments in the rendering, the visibilities, and in the selection of the respective guideline (grid line). If, however, you have defined these views beforehand, you just need one click on the according view.
Another advantage of user‑defined views is that they are now available for the mass print. Thus, if you have defined a visibility for each frame and want to print the according internal forces N, Vz, My into the printout report, you can perform this action in one go.
