The template can be an ordinary .pattern file (which can be created directly via the Save button in the main reinforcement tab) file or a .mstrpat file (Master Pattern File) which can be saved in this window via the "Save pattern..." button or simply created manually.

Should the pattern and the section not align satisfactory, the whole pattern can be translated in both y- and z-direction (see bottom of Figure 1). The new position of the pattern can be saved via the "Save pattern..." button.

Alternatively for a 2-button mouse, double-click left/right is zoom in/out and shift+left click and drag is pan. The "Zoom extent" button will reset the zoom to showing the full pattern and section.
