How can I display the free loads only within a certain range?


In general, unlike with structural elements, you can not select or hide loads by means of a selection. In the Display navigator, it is only possible to display all loads of the same type (ex Nodal loads, member loads, free polygon loads, ...) are activated or deactivated for display.
Loads are always object-related. If a part of the structure is hidden, the corresponding loads are also hidden.

A special feature is the free loads. If they are not explicitly assigned to specific surfaces, they are always displayed - even if the loaded surfaces are hidden. Therefore, it is recommended to assign the free loads only to the corresponding surfaces.
The quickest way to do this is to use tables 3.6 - 3.11.

Note: For the model types 2D, it is not possible to assign the free loads to special surfaces and they are thus always displayed for the entire structure.
