In the Settings menu in Simulation Mode you set parameters which serve as a basis for the simulation, e.g. materials and heaters properties, initial values, boundary conditions, mesh properties and and parameters for inverse or time-dependent simulation.

The menu item Symmetry is also available in Geometry mode, the menu item Materials is also available in Materials Mode.
