The display scale of the generated loads is not correct.
How can I solve this problem?

Answer

If you have a trapezoidal load value close to zero, for example, the scale might be incorrect as there are very small values to be displayed. In this case, there is a setting error in the display properties.

Just proceed as follows:
  • Right-click the load to open the shortcut menu.
  • Select "Display Properties..."
  • Click on the magnifying glass at the size scale 1 [kN/m].
  • Enter the minimum value of the minimum limits at 0.1%, for example.
  • Click OK to confirm.
The scale of your graphic will be immediately adjusted and correct.

Important Note:
  1. The zero value is not displayed on the loads (see Figure 03).
  2. If the zero value is displayed, it certainly contains decimal digits. By zooming, you discover that the diagram does not form a closed angle at the end (see Figure 04).
