In DIN 66261, the German Institute for Standardization defined the appearance of Nassi-Shneiderman diagrams. Menu option "DIN?" (or "DIN 66261?") is to turn on a DIN-conform diagram representation.

Actually, this setting affects only the FOR loop, because it is the sole element type, for which the Structorizer representation may differ from the DIN-66261 specification:

FOR diagram according to DIN


FOR diagram not according to DIN


FOR loop in accordance with DIN 66261
("DIN?" checked; default in Structorizer since release 3.30)
FOR loop not in accordance with DIN 66261
("DIN?" unchecked; default in Structorizer before release 3.30)


Also note the appearance of different toolbar and menu icons depending on the setting.

Icons For-Loop in DIN mode

Icon "FOR loop" with "DIN?" checked


Icons For-Loop in not-DIN mode

Icon "FOR loop" with "DIN?" not checked


Note: You can alter freely between DIN and non-DIN mode. The appearance of all diagrams will immediately switch to the new mode. This is no modification of the diagrams themselves but only of their representation.
