T.1 Switching on node and beam labels

Node and beam labels are a way of identifying the entities in the View window.

  1. Right click anywhere in the view window and select Labels from the pop-up menu.

    The Diagrams dialog opens to the Labels tab.

  2. Set the Node Numbers and Beam Numbers on and then click OK.

    Select the Node and Beam numbers

    Tip: Alternatively, you can press <Shift+N> and then <Shift+B> to quickly toggle the same labels. The letters in parenthesis on the Labels tab indicate these <Shift> key shortcuts.
Tip: You can change the font of the node/beam labels by selecting the File ribbon tab and then selecting Settings > Display Options. Select the appropriate tab (Node Labels / Beam labels) from the Options dialog.
