Templates are descriptions o f form s and tables th a t can be included in Tekla Structures. Templates
o are either graphical or te xtual. G raphical tem plates can be included in draw ings as tables, te x t

o blocks, and draw ing headers. Textual tem plates can be used as reports. The contents o f the tem plate
fields are fille d in by Tekla Structures at run tim e.
Tekla Structures includes a large num ber o f standard tem plates you can use. Use Tem plate Editor to
m od ify existing tem plates, or create new ones to su it your needs. Graphical te m pla te defin itio n s
o have the file name extension . t p l . Textual tem plate d e fin itio n s have the file name extension

You can create graphical tem plates fo r nested assemblies in the
same m anner as te xtu a l tem plates. The difference between
graphical and te xtu a l tem plates is th a t in a graphical te m plate you
can display p roject and com pany in fo rm a tio n and graphics, such as
table outlines, pictures, or symbols.

Templates 11 Creating a template


Adding images in a template
You can add images in graphical templates. For example, you might w ant to include a company logo
in your drawings. Tekla Structures supports the following image formats in graphical templates:
.bmp, .jpg, -jpeg, .tif, .tiff and .png.
To add an image in a template:
1. Open an existing graphical template in Template Editor.
2. Add a new row in the template.
a Click Insert > Component > Row to add a new row.
b Select a content type for the row and click OK.
3. Click Insert > Picture to open the Select Picture File dialog box.
If a local symbols folder exists, the contents of that folder is shown by default. You can browse
the contents of common\symbols folder by selecting th a t folder. If a local symbols folder does
not exist, Tekla Structures displays the contents of the commorAsymbois folder.
4. Select an image from the list and click OK.
5. Click and drag with the mouse to draw a frame for the image.

Do not add really large images, as they update very si.owly.


The image may look different in the image editor than in the
printout or in the exported DWG file.
When you export the drawing to DWG, Tekla Structures copies
the images in the same folder as the DWG file, if the image for
some reason is not in the same folder, only the name of the
image is displayed together with an empty frame instead of the
image in the DWG.
If environments have local symbols, the local symbol folder is
also included in the search path with the common\symbols
folder. If the local symbols folder contains files with the same
name as common\symbols folder, then the local symbol file is
used.
When you open the drawing that contains images inserted in
the template, Tekla Structures first looks for the images in the
model folder and then in the \symbols folder in the current
environment.
You can define a folder where Tekla Structures always looks for
images using environment variable d x k _ s y m b o l p a t h . You can
also define a firm folder for your images.

Example Below are some examples of the Select Picture File dialog box showing folder structure in different
environments.

1.3 Template attributes
Template a ttrib u te s represent object properties. You can use tem plate a ttrib u te s in value fields,
form ulas, and row rules to get the required data from your Tekla Structures database.
When you o u tp u t the tem plate, Tekla Structures replaces the a ttrib u te w ith the actual value o f the
corresponding obje ct property. For example, if you include the a ttrib u te w e i g h t in a report
tem plate, Tekla Structures displays the w e ig h t o f the model object in the report.
Template a ttrib u te s are defined in the fo llo w in g files:

File name Description


contentattributes.1st This is a co ntaine r file listing all the files th a t
contain the actual a ttrib u te d efin itio n s. The files are
added w ith i n c l u d e sentences. The order o f the
files included in contentattributes .1st
defines the reading order o f the files.
This file is o ve rw ritte n in the in sta lla tio n when you
install a newer version o f Tekla Structures. Ensure
th a t you make a copy o f th is file before updating.
Generally, there is no need to m odify
contentattributes .1st. Do n ot m odify it if
you are n ot an adm inistrator.

contentattributes_global.1st This file contains a ttrib u te s th a t are hard-coded


into the program . Do not edit this file.

contentattributes_userdefined. This file contains user-defined a ttribu te s, the same


1st as in the obj e c t s .inp file.
This file is o ve rw ritte n in the in sta lla tio n when you
install a newer version o f Tekla Structures. To use
your own a ttrib u te s in tem plates and reports, create
