How can I adjust inserted cross-sections in SHAPE‑THIN?

Answer

If you want to modify the individual elements of an inserted cross-section, you can do this in several ways.

1. Selecting another cross-section from cross-section library 
If you edit the cross-section or select another one, the corresponding elements will be changed as well. Click the "Parametric Input" button to modify the specified cross-section properties.

This option is especially useful if you want to keep the base geometry and symmetry of the original cross-section. The sheet thickness and the total height or width can be adjusted very easily in this way.

2. Reducing section to individual elements 
In this way, you can create single, independent elements from the inserted cross-section. Subsequently, they can be edited like the elements created normally.
This procedure is useful, for ecample, if you want to change the base geometry of the original cross-section.
