In order to print the picture without loads and without reference to a load case, all results and loads must be hidden.
Only if there is no text in the title and max/min info, is the picture printed without any reference in the printout report.
When printing a graphic with the "window filling" setting, all objects of the window content, which can be displayed absolutely, are printed in the printout report. However, the variable objects, such as the text of dimensions or comments, do not limit this graphic because the text is scaled according to the zoom setting.
It is usually very easy to check whether all objects meet this requirement: To do this, activate the display of light positions in the Project Navigator - Display. All objects that are now within the dashed box are usually also shown in the printout report.
As an alternative, you can also use the "As screen view" setting for the graphic printing in such a case.
There are only some fictitious blank pages inserted and added to the table of contents. Thus, the printout report can be printed out on paper and then supplemented with your own documents from other programs (Excel tables, Word documents, or drawings). The table of contents and the page numbering are adjusted automatically.
An empty author.ini is not possible. It is mandatory to enter something in the first line, but the second and third lines may be empty.
Please also note that the text is only specified in author.ini. All other adjustments should be made in the settings of the printout report header.
In the "Properties" dialog box, you can change the title of a chapter and enter an additional comment, which will appear on the left page margin of the printout report. It is possible to show or hide this additional text.
You can also insert additional comments to the graphics in the printout report.
AnswerIn the printout report selection, you can add the intermediate results of the add-on module in the Reinforcement tab.
In RFEM and RSTAB, you can insert external images into the printout report.
For this, you need to copy the image to the Clipboard using [Ctrl+C]. Click "Insert" → "Image from Clipboard" in the printout report menu to insert the image into the printout report.
This image appears as a separate section at the end of the printout report and you can move it to any position using the drag-and-drop function.
This feature also allows you to print a clipping plane in the printout report. To do this, take a screenshot of the clipping plane and copy it to the clipboard.
AnswerIt can happen that the results in the image are also activated. In this case, there is a conflict and thus the colors are not displayed. Right-click the image and select Edit, deactivate the results in the model and return to the printout report. The display should be OK by now.
AnswerThe driver of the default Windows printer is used when displaying the printout report. If the printer is not compatible or there is no printer selected, a problem may occur. The solution is to change the default printer in Windows.
AnswerSometimes, it is not possible to print the graphics bigger as the lighting of the structure is controlled by a box in the background. Therefore, some space is lost in the printout report.

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.
