Allows you to define a weld symbol and the label template used to place that symbol. The options correspond to the properties you define using the StructPhysicalConnection Properties dialog box.

Weld label templates are in the [Reference Data Folder]\SharedContent\Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates\WeldSymbols folder.

The graphic below shows a standard ISO weld symbol and the check boxes that display in the the upper-left pane of the Symbol Configuration tab.

Click a check box to display options that allow you to customize the corresponding part of the weld symbol, define new weld symbol labels, and display or hide labels. The options display on the right side of the Symbol Configuration tab. Clear a check box to hide the corresponding options. You can select multiple check boxes. Depending on the selected weld label template, some check boxes might be unavailable.

A red outline on a check box indicates that you cannot modify that option. In the graphic above, you cannot clear check boxes 5, 6, and Tail Note is a Reference (above check box 7).
