Save project
your current project is saved directly without further inquiry.
If no file name is present the save dialog is opened. You will find the function Save project 3-times in the user interface with the same functionality. This serves to an easier and quicker operation.

This function guides you to the backstage-area to the function Section New and provides a gallery of predefined projects to be opened.

  • Remove all existing loads and moments
  • Remove the profile
