This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

After changing the setting of this advanced option, update the existing rebar sets in the model by clicking Concrete > Rebar set > Regenerate rebar sets to activate the new setting.
