After the member is selected, a list of member properties will be displayed in the
properties table. (see element 5)

2. The second member dropdown box refers to the type of sections available from the
selected member type. For example, a variety of section types are part of the Hot
Rolled Structural Sections such as equal angles, universal beams and columns etc.

By selecting a different member type, an accompanying set of section types will be
listed in this dropdown box.

3. This element contains two windows. The Physical window shows the location of
the dimensional properties for the currently selection section type. If the dimensions
checkbox is ticked in the table window (see element 4), then the corresponding
dimension values for each sized section will be displayed in the properties table. (see
element 5)

The Mechanical window details the orientation of the principle axes for the selected
section type and relevant dimensional locations from the principle axes. The
dimension values are listed in the properties table. (see element 5)

4. This element contains several checkboxes allowing you to customise the view of
the properties table (element 5). The main categories (dimensions, section properties,
properties for assessing section properties and others) can be expanded and each
element selected or unselected in order to allow the properties table to show only the
dimensions or properties of specific interest.

5. The properties table shows a list of dimensions and properties for various sized
sections. If the dimension/property titles are cut off, you may click on the tabs in
order to expand the entire column and reveal the data.

Useful Buttons

The main screen of the OneSteel Section Catalogue contains some buttons that
provide shortcuts to commonly used functions. Only the basic functions will be
explained in the quick start guide.

Export button
The export button allows you to export the currently displayed data in the properties
table to a .csv (comma separated values) file. Once the button is pressed, you will
have the option of saving the .csv file to a specified location. After the filename and
location have be specified, clicking the open button will save and open the .csv file in
the default spreadsheet software installed on your computer.

Dimension diagram button
The dimension button produces a diagram of the selected section size with dimension
values. Before this button can be used, you must select a section size from the
properties table.

Help button
The help button opens the OneSteel help file. The OneSteel help file provides
comprehensive detail on all the features of the OneSteel Section Catalogue software.
