When you create a Portal Frame, the column size proposed by default is a HEA200 and the rafter is a IPE200.

How to change the column and rafter sizes in the Portal Frame macro

In order to modify e.g. the "Column size", you need to go to the Management Tools ("Start the Management Tools" icon from the "Standard" toolbar), go to "Default sections" category and search for the "Default section for structural element (Column)" default.

"HEA nach DIN#@§@#HEA200" by "IPE nach DIN#@§@#IPE360".
