Part Marks Set to “None”            Start With This

         Then you select Part(s),
          right click, and choose
         “Part Mark” and you get
            the marks you want.
Save Part Mark To Standard
                   When Adding if you Don’t
                   have a “standard” saved
                   away, Tekla uses default
                   values. So select an item
                   in the “Elements in mark”
                   list that is correct, and
                   save as “standard”, then
                   any newly added elements
                   will be correct.
