How to change the reinforcement in redesign page for shear wall?

RCDC automatically calculates the optimized reinforcement for shear wall in auto design mode as per the input settings made by user. After that also due to some reasons users may want to change the rebar dia, spacing etc. in shear wall. That can be done in redesign mode. Once we enter in redesign mode we need to select an element from the combined shear wall as different element will be having different reinforcement arrangement. you can double click on the element in table or in view as shown in snap below.

Once you double click on any element that will be opened for modification. Now the reinforcements can be changed like other modules.
