I need to create a new material. When i try to change the thickness, OpenStudio won´t let me change the thickness.The other parameters allow changing when they are whole numbers, otherwise it doesn't. In thickness, does not accept any number. Please Help!!image description

@raquel-jorge97 can you include a screenshot image of the input field that you are not able to change? That would help others provide better answers.

@raquel-jorge97 so it is Thickness just to the right of Roughness that you are trying to change, but OpenStudio isn't letting you? What value are you trying to enter? A circle or highlight in your screenshot would be helpful.

It sounds like the issue might be related to using a non-US language and comma vs decimal point? See

Thank you very much!! Actually, it was a problem with windows language!
