    Expert mode/ Add Remove. I don't remember, but you may have to edit xml file to have this option.

    I have tried this, but the restoration does not move with the changed position of model, it stays the same eg. appart or inside the model...

    I think this is the xml edit.

    C:\exocad\DentalCADApp\config\defaultsettings

    Make a copy of the default settings so you have something to go back to.

    I actually got it done. I added the line to the xml file and the option appeared. So what I had to do was:

    1. I imported both upper and lower jaw with new bite registration (I used the same project for scanning in DOF software so the lower jaw was in correct position)
    2. Then I aligned both jaws according to new bite.
    3. As the restoration was in the correct place, I corrected the margin lines as they were in older position, screw holes were automatically then aligned correctly.
    4. I redid the gingiva bottom design and also the whole gingiva design as it was reset.
    5. Corrected a bit teeth positions as they needed to be in higher position.

    If there is shorter way to do it, I would gladly like to hear about it. For now it seems to me that these steps are required in every possible way. Or if I don´t have to remark the preparation, then the teeth need to be corrected in position as they are in heavy occlusion (when the preparation moves according to the new bite with the work model).
