You can find this setting in Display Properties under the "Font," "Other," and "Guidelines" categories.
AnswerThe reason is the relative limit settings that can be defined for each load type in the display settings. In order to display the load in a triangular shape, it is necessary to reduce the minimum value for "1 [kN/m²]." The smallest value that can be set is 0.1%.The relative limit settings are used to control the minimum and the maximum display size in relation to the maximum dimensions of the entire model.
AnswerFor some parameters, there are the additional [Details] buttons available in Display Properties. Open a new dialog box where you can, for example, scale the distance or the size of the object to the dimensions of the entire model.
AnswerThe font size of Title and Max/Min Info can be set in Display Properties. You can use this feature by using the menu Options → Display Properties → Edit.
AnswerFirst, make sure that the increased size of the load arrows in the display properties is also set for the printout report. You can set a value between 3 to 8 for the arrow size. If there is no improvement in spite of changing the size to the maximum value and reloading the printout report, you should update your graphics and printer driver.
AnswerThe loads are always displayed with the relative limit settings.In this way, it is ensured that the loads on very small structures, but also on very large structures can still be displayed reasonably.You can individually adjust the relative limit settings by using the display properties.
In the attached video, the reduction of the minimum relative limit for the load value display allows for the user-defined form of the graphic.
AnswerYes, it is possible by using the configuration manager.Display properties are a component of the currently active configuration. The active configuration is displayed in bold in the configuration manager (Options → Configuration Manager) (see Figure 01). You can easily export the customized display properties of this configuration to a file and import them to another PC by clicking the corresponding button (see Figure 01).If using the RSTAB, you obtain the configuration file with the extension ".rsconfig" for the export. For RFEM, you obtain a ".rfconfig" file.
AnswerNo, it is not possible to change display properties for several categories (for example, the text size for load values of all load types) at once. This must be set individually for each category (for example, a load type).However, if you have set the display properties for a configuration on your PC once, you can simply transfer it to another PC by using Configuration Manager. This is explained in FAQ 2982 under the following link.
AnswerFor some parameters, additional [Details] buttons are available in the display properties. You can open a new dialog box where it is possible to scale e.g. the distance or size of the object to the dimensions of the entire model.
Right-click one of the values and select 'Display Properties' in the shortcut menu to get directly to the required setting: Here you can make settings in both tabs 'Screen' and 'Printout Report', for example to set transparent or coloured display of the values or the background colour of the values.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
“Thank you for the valuable information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. I have used a lot of software with a support contract in the field of structural analysis, but your support is by far the best. ”
