Menu: Data->Problem type
This option lets you choose between all installed Problem Types. When selecting a new problem type, all information about materials, conditions and other data parameters that were already selected or defined is lost.
Note: When defining a new problem type which is not already installed, it must be selected by other means. One possibility is to select Problem type -> Load... . Another possibility is to select "data defaults problemtype" in the Right buttons menu or enter it in the command line.
A problem type is considered to be installed when it has been copied to the GiD Problem Types directory or to another subdirectory within this.
Note: Instead of copying the problem type to the Problem Types directory, it is also possible to create a Windows shell link (a direct access), or a UNIX link, pointing to the real location. This option is particularly interesting for developers, as it avoids duplicating the code.
