Undo

The previous work is canceled by this function. The previous works are cancelled step by step by applying the Undo function repeatedly. Once the structural analysis, mode change, load combination change, or modeling change has been completed, the Undo function does not activate on the previous actions. The previous work can also be canceled by the shortcut key [ctrl + z].

Redo

The work canceled by the Undo function is reinstated by this function. The previous works canceled step by step by the Undo function are reinstated by applying the Redo function repeatedly. Once the structural analysis, mode change, load combination change, or modeling change has been completed, the Redo function does not fulfill its function. The previous work can also be reinstated by the shortcut key [ctrl + r].

Cut

The components of finite element model such as finite elements and nodes are cut and saved in the clipboard by this function. The contents saved previously in the clipboard are deleted. The function is also activated by the shortcut key [ctrl + x].

Copy

The components of finite element model are copied and saved in the clipboard by this function. The contents saved previously in the clipboard are deleted. The function is also activated by the shortcut key [ctrl + c].

Paste

The contents saved in the clipboard by the function Cut or Copy are called and pasted by this function. When pasting, a reference point must be designated by clicking the mouse or inputting the coordinates of the reference point. The reference point must be located at the smallest values of x- and z-coordinate of the contents. The function can also be activated by the shortcut key [ctrl + v].

Delete

The components of finite element model are deleted by this function. The information assigned to each component is also deleted. The function of this function can also be activated by the key [Delete].

Find...

The components of finite element model are searched by this function. A node or finite element is found by typing in a number or character in View Options Window.

Divide...

A selected element in the finite element model of truss structure is divided into multiple elements according to the following three options.

Uniform space: An element is divided into multiple equal-sized elements by typing in the desired number of elements.

Absolute distance: An element is divided into multiple equal- or unequal-sized elements by assigning reference point(s). The number of reference points and generated elements cannot exceed 3 and 4, respectively.

Relative distance: An element is divided into multiple equal- or unequal-sized elements by typing in the size ratio(s) ranging 0 to 1. The size ratio is the length ratio of the generated element to the original element. The number of size ratios and generated elements cannot exceed 3 and 4, respectively.

Offset...

A new element that is parallel to the selected element is generated by this function. The distance between the selected element and the newly generated element must be assigned along with the number of elements that must be generated.

Move...

The location of a selected element is altered by this function. The reference and moving points must be assigned by clicking the mouse.

Stretch

The lengths of elements that are connected to some selected elements are changed by moving the selected elements and nodes. The reference and moving points must be assigned by clicking the mouse. Without using the Pull-down menu and shortcut key, the positions of nodes can be moved directly by the mouse.

Mirror

The selected elements and nodes are copied and moved symmetrically by this function. Prior to selecting the mirror type Move or Copy, a reference line must be determined by clicking the mouse twice.

Rotate

A selected element is rotated by this function. A reference point and rotating angle must be assigned in order.

Object Snap Mode

The snaps helpful for the modeling and editing of truss structure can be set by this function.

Edit Template

This function is working only for the models constructed by using a Template. The editing works regarding the changes or refinements of geometrical shape of concrete member, load and boundary conditions, and truss model are possible by this function. These Menus are same of New from Template Dialog.
