I have to check in RC form the foundation continues, but Robot considers the item as a simple beam and not as a foundation. How can I check the foundation?

thanks

Apply elastic ground to these bars (Geometry \ Additional  Properties \ Bar Elastic Ground) then import them to RC Continuos Footings module.

I have already applied the elastic foundation beams, but I did not understand the steps to verify the RC module.

I select the elements and then I click the icon "Armor of real elements in CA" but Robot considers foundations such as beams.

Look at the movie: http://screencast.com/t/YEMDXNAQ6

If it does not help please check RC Code set in job preferences and\or send me the file.
