End + Continue command
The End+continue is another functionality similar to End and Cancel.
End - confirms the inserting and stops the input functionality
Cancel - aborts the inserting and stops the input functionality
When a user wants to insert an element with different properties, he must use End (or Cancel), start the functionality again and change properties of the new element.
End+continue allows the user to continue with the current functionality and insert an element with different properties.
How it works
- start the input dialogue in a standard way
- insert the first element and use End+continue in the context menu
- the first element is inserted and the properties are displayed, change the property which should be different on the second element
- insert the second element, this is inserted with the different properties
Which commands are supported
All geometric elements can be inserted without problems - e.g. beams, members, lines, supports ...
Polygons - the first polygon with at least 3 edges must be closed and then the second polygon can be inserted with modified properties - e.g. plates, shells, openings, ...
There are also some add data which doesn’t support this functionality. It is member data which launches another dialogue during the input - e.g.concrete member data.
