How can I move a member or a line by using Drag & Drop?


The drag & drop function is very helpful for fast work in RFEM and RSTAB. It is first necessary to activate this option in the shortcut menu (Figure 01).

If you click a member or a line near the start or end node in the work window, you can quickly define the new connection point graphically.

However, if you grab a member or a line in the middle third, you can simply move the element to a new position.

If you additionally press the "Ctrl" key, the marked elements are copied.

The video first shows how to move the column head of Member 2 from Node 2 to Node 4. Then, it shows how Member 2 is moved to a new position.
