Axial forces in Robot

I am trying to figure out the way robot displays the axial forces for bar elements.


While looking at Fx, from Diagrams for bars, I noticed that the displaced forces are "Fx +C" / "Fx-T". Does this imply that the axial force has been increased/ decreased by the compression/tension resulting from bending?


Attached is a printrscreen of what I'm refering to.

No, it means positive values are compressions and negative ones are tension.
