I'm using Beopt to run wall retrofit options comparing new technologies to a un-insulated wall. I've built my baseline wall as the un-insulated wall. I'm entering a new insulation option in Beopt "Option Manager" that represents a closed cell foam not currently in the Beopt library. I'm trying to add this new option to the Wall options in a user-defined analysis. The new option is only available in the "Existing" tab and not in the "My Design" tab. How can I get my new insulation to display in all tabs?

Double-check that the non-insulation properties of the wall are the same between the existing wall and the wall you want to upgrade to. BEopt will only offer wall options as upgrades if the walls have the same framing factor and same cavity depth, indicating that both walls are e.g. 2x4 or 2x6.
