I would like to save foundations with certain dimensions as a template in the library. Is that possible? For me the button is disabled in the dialog "1.2 Geometry".

Answer

If you "lay out" the dimensions of the foundation plate, then the option to save the foundation dimensions is inactive. Even if results from a previous calculation are already stored and available. See picture 01.

However, after the first calculation in the "layout" mode, you can use the configured dimensions of the foundation plate as the "start values" for a new calculation using the "Apply foundation plate dimensions from the calculation" button. See Figure 02.

This deletes the results from the first calculation and runs the program in Define Dimensions mode. In this mode, the option to save the foundation dimensions in the foundation library is now also available. See picture 03.
