Problem Description

ProConcrete Crashing repeatedly when using rebar tools. It's not allowing to add any new bars or edit bars without the very likely possibility of the application crashing. Also, crashing when using Modify Rebar tool to detail the bars.


Such a crash may happen due to various reasons, some of which are listed below.
1. It may crash because of the different resolution and working area units in the Design File Settings.
2. It may crash if the rebars in the model are not correctly created or modified.
