To select the character encoding

To manually select the character encoding used in the editor, use the following procedure.

You may typically only need to change the encoding to view some analysis output files. The auto-detect setting will work for STAAD input files.

For example, to correctly view the design results for steel design per the Russian SP 16.13330.2017 code, you must select "Cyrillic (Windows) (1251: windows-1251)" as the method of encoding.

  1. On the Home ribbon tab in the STAAD.Proエディタ, select the Settings tool in the Settings group.

    The Settings dialog opens.
  2. On the General tab, select the appropriate encoding system from the Default Encoding drop-down list.
  3. Click OK. You are prompted to reload the file if one is open.
  4. Click Yes.
