I am using WWR measure in PAT and I noticed that the models (with different WWR (in.osm)) created in PAT (from seed model), does not have the same properties as seed model. Models lost their Frame and divider and Shading controls. So the results are not correct! How can I fix this problem? I know I can simulate models with different WWR separately without using PAT, but this takes a lot more time.

Do you mean the same Measure works outside of PAT but not from within PAT?

I meant that WWR measure (with Frame and divider and Shading controls) does not work within PAT, but you can make a separate .osm models with different WWR (seed models variants) and run each model by itself (in OS without using PAT).

Frame and divider and Shading controls does not work with PAT, WWR measure alone works great.

I don't think any of the WWR measures on the BCL are "frame and divider-aware" if you will, so what is happening is when the WWR measure runs it strips off the existing subsurfaces and replaces them anew, devoid of any F&D objects you may have added to your seed model.
