Special ASCII Characters in Text Block

Tips & Tricks

There is a text block function in the printout report of RFEM/RSTAB. This feature allows you to create user-defined text blocks with formatting and heading and add it to the printout report. Frequently recurring text blocks are covered in the text block library. Here you can save any existing text block to use it again later.

Such text blocks can be used for documentation of technical issues. In addition to all the standard text and format data, you can also enter the special ASCII characters, for example the diameter symbol Ø (ALT + 157). When inserting the symbol, please make sure the ASCII code is entered using the numeric keypad.
