DESCRIPTION:



The PRINT JOINT CONNECTIVITY command will abort if there are not any

members attached to a joint in the joint list.



Workaround:



Perform a CONSISTENCY CHECK. If CONSISTENCY CHECK indicates that there

are any joints that do not have any members or elements attached to them

(floating joints), either delete the floating joints before giving the

PRINT JOINT CONNECTIVITY  command or give a list of joints in the PRINT

JOINT CONNECTIVITY list where list does not include the floating joints.

DESCRIPTION:



                          OVERLAY DIAGRAM Size



     OVERLAY DIAGRAM in the Plotter Environment produces diagrams that

are much smaller relative to the plot size than the Scope Environment

does.  This is because the structure plot is magnified to fill the

Plotter graphics area, but the height of the diagram is not increased.



     As a work-around, use the PLOT FORMAT SCALE command to decrease the

scale factor, which will increase the size of the diagram.  The cur-rent

value is printed with a Scope Environment OVERLAY DIAGRAM.  The value

printed with a Plotter Environment OVERLAY DIAGRAM is incorrect.



     For example, if a Moment Z diagram is OVERLAYed with a scale factor

of 100.0 on the Scope, the command PLOT FORMAT SCALE MOMENT Z 50.  would

scale a reasonable OVERLAY DIAGRAM for the Plotter.
