Why robot use compression force in bars like a positive value and tension as a negative? Is it possible to change in some further versions and add to wishlist?

This limitation is very frustrating. I'd like to decide what is positive or negative.

And I'd like to change the colors too. Is that already possible? thanks

Thanks Rafal!

Will it ever be possibile to change what is positive or negative? My clients use the opposite notation as robot and they never understand my graphs

 

For now, which is the best and fastet workaround to change the graphic results?

Thanks!

Thanks, I could change the blue, but I still cannot change the yellow.. Is that possible?

I'm looking for a workaround to mirror the results of tension and compression.. Do you know one?

Great! I could change the other colors and the sign in excel..
Now if there's a way to re-imput those values in robot and create a new "correct" diagram that'll be awesome!
Do you know a way to do that Rafal?
