2 Input Data

When you start the add-on module, a new window opens. In this window, a navigator is displayed on the left, managing the available module windows. The drop-down list above the navigator contains the design cases.

The data that is relevant for the limit values must be defined in two input windows. If you set a timber standard for the analysis, a third input window for the definition of the load duration class is automatically added.

To select a particular module window, click the corresponding entry in the navigator. To go to the previous or subsequent module window, use the buttons shown on the left. You can also use the function keys to select the next [F2] or previous [F3] module window.

To save the entered data, click [OK]. You will exit RF-/LIMITS and return to the main program. Click [Cancel] to exit the add-on module without saving the data.
