When I save a file from the STAAD.Pro GUI, the joint coordinate data and member incidence data are written into the .std file in such a manner that there are several entries per line, separated by semi-colons. I would like it to be written in a way that the joint coordinate data is written as one joint per line and the member incidence data is written as one member per line. Is there some setting in the program to facilitate this?
Close all input files.
From the File menu, select Configure - Input File Format. Switch on the items for which you wish to have the single line format. Click on Accept.
Then, choose File - Open - open the input file. Click on Save. This setting will ensure that all desired data will henceforth be saved in the single line format.
