Critical buckling buckling load multiplier calculated but not displayed

Hi All,

I'm playing with the buckling critical analisys using very simple models.

It seems to me that the multiplier of the loads is calculated but not displayed. Look at the picture!

Any Suggestion ?

My guess is that there is a typing mistake for your language. The code "\n" should instruct the software to insert a blank line; the "\n" code should not appear in the annotation.


The fix should be relatively easy. Locate the branch "Annotations" in the browser, expand it, and "Edit" the default annotation. This will show the text and special codes used to create the label, something like this: Time: \a\n\nTime Step:  \c of \L\n\nMaximum Value: \M\n\nMinimum Value: \m\n\n\N < \D >


On the dialog, just to the right of where you type the "Annotation text", is a black arrow pointing to the right. Click on it to see what special codes can be entered into the text. One of them should be for the buckling multiplier.
