I am observing existing Property tables instead of standard element type library

If you don't have any plate properties in your model, you must create a new plate property before hand or create a new one by selecting the button off to the right.

Then select "Elem/Property Type" to change the type.

Then select "Plate" as your type.

You can now fill out the info of the new plate property.

I don't know if you can create a new property when you modify a property. I am sure that if exist other properties you can change the elements property to the new one.

 

I have see the previous post, you can create a new as suggested

Thank you so much Folks. I am assuming there will be an option to change from Membrane element without creating the property to the Plate elements. Other Pre-Processor do have this option
