In some add-on modules I am informed that the cross-section in the main program and in the add-on module are not identical. How should I proceed?

Answer

The affected cross-section is shown in blue. This means that in RSTAB / RFEM a different cross section is used than in the additional module. This in turn means that the internal forces with the cross-section assigned in RSTAB / RFEM (in Fig. 1 = IPE 300) and the proof in the additional module with the cross-section assigned there (in Fig. 1 = IPE 80). Either this was changed manually in the additional module or a cross-section optimization was carried out.
 
It is therefore recommended to use the right mouse button to copy the cross-section from RSTAB / RFEM (see Figure 2) or to pass the cross-section used in the add-on module to RSTAB / RFEM. The cross sections are then identical again or shown in black letters.
