What happens to my data when I update the weldassistant?
Nothing, the weldassistant does not overwrite your created data. If you maintain multiple weldassistant licenses, please make sure that you have the same software versions. Otherwise there may be an incompatibility and therefore you can not work with older versions, if you have a shared data path to save your data.
When creating a welding certificate, I no longer have access to the welder's inspection data/area range of approval.
You must first select ISO 9606-1 as the test standard. The calculation is based on ISO 9606-1 only.

You can edit the naming of the layers. You can name for example Sector 0°-90°, Sector 91°- etc., according to your own creativity.
Why can't I open seam sketches in the welding sequence?
You must click on the arrow to the left of the seam type designation, then the selection of a number of layers opens, where you will eventually find your sketch.
