Until now we focused only on the Text Editor to learn about the essentials of the input syntax.

And having a solid understanding of CADiNP is the key to successfully implement the text input to your projects.

However, the Text Editor is also available as an embedded version in SOFiSTiK Structural Desktop. And as such allows you to combine the graphical input with the text input.

We will look into the following topics
