AnswerIt is not allowed to transfer printout reports from one program to another.

AnswerAs a student and test user, you have the advantage of using the complete Dlubal software (except for the module DICKQ) free of charge and without any restrictions. However, the only drawback that you have to put up with is the watermark in the printout report. It can not be deactivated and should be deactivated for commercial use.
AnswerBy default, the graphic is only printed in the report at more than 40% of the page height. In some cases, it may be useful to display the graphic printout over the entire height of the page and to rotate the graphic by 90 ° (see Figure 02). Normally, it should be sufficient to display the dimensions with two decimal places in order to save space. This setting can be defined in the menu "Units and Decimal Places" (see Figure 03). Finally, the auxiliary lines can be shortened and the font size can be reduced (see Figure 04). A font size of 5 should be sufficient for an A4 printout. To select a small font size, you should use the "Small Fonts" font. The finished result is shown in Figure 05.
AnswerMicrosoft Office text files, if saved as rtf format, can be included in the RSTAB / RFEM printout report. To do this, select the "Text file" function in the printout report via the "Insert" button (see Figure 1).

AnswerIf you want to print graphics in a log, the corresponding subitem must be active in the selection of the printout log in the "Global Selection" tab, see Figure 1. As a result, the tables are also displayed.
If only images are to be printed in the log, it is necessary to deactivate the tables in the tabs, see Figure 2.
AnswerIn the printout report selection, you can find filter options, for example, to display only the maximum design by member in the table. These filters considerably reduce the circumference. The filter options are also available directly in the add-on module.
AnswerIf you like to see the results in the printout report with all details, then please press the button "Select Topics for printout report" in the toolbar in the printout report. Now you can select the program where you want to see the detailed results. After that you select the register "Results" and here the chapter where are you interested in. On the right side you can open the "Details" menu. At least you have to enable the check "With intermediate results".
When displaying member and surface results on the screen at the same time, only one panel appears. However, you can switch between members and surfaces (see Figure 01).
In the case of the graphic printout, you can specify how to display both panels in the printout report (see Figure 02).
