After installing the CONNECT Edition, beam force diagrams and stress plots may appear in black rather than in color. Other symptoms include displacement diagrams changing from red to black or labels using a very small font.
This only happens in certain cases depending on the order in which various STAAD.pro versions are installed and uninstalled.
Ensure that STAAD.Pro is closed. Copy the file StaadPro21.00.00.ini from the folder
C:\ProgramData\Bentley\Engineering\STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition\
To the folder:
C:\Users\<user.name>\AppData\Local\Bentley\Engineering\STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition\Default\
Where the <user.name> matches the current Windows user. Replace the file that is already there.
Tip - If the C:\ProgramData folder is hidden, simply type that folder name into the file browser address bar. If you cannot locate the AppData\Local directory type %appdata% in the browser address bar then go up one level.
