I am placing reinforcing using the Single Rebarset placement tool. Once I have placed thebars in the correct location I save and exit out of the command. When I exit the file and re-open it I notice that the reinforcing bar's cover have changed automatically to the outside of the concrete.
Is this because of the method of placement?
I have attached a video of my procedure and what happens once I re-open the file.
I investigated this issue and it is found as known defect on which the work is going on to fix this issue.Any modification or change rebar get rebuild and sometimes it is reproducible and sometimes not.One workaround is there to change the cover value from positive to negative or vice versa.Can you tell me which ProStructures Update you are using?

Thank you for your reply and looking into this issue.
We are currently using ProStructures Update 1. We are waiting for the release of Update 3.
I have tried changing the cover to a negative or vice versa and it does put the bars in the correct location. But once I close the file and re-open it again, the same problem occurs every time.
Can you please try to place Rebar using Polygon instead of selecting points?I believe this workaround will work for you.
Yes, the place rebar using polygon works ok. I have tested it.
Will place by points work in a later version?
