I cannot create .grd files

I followed the instructions to create a .grd file but when I followed the steps and clicked create it, an error occurred that you cannot create a file with this format.

Hi,

the .grd file is a text file, so you can use your favourite text editor to write it. See ElmerGrid manual for more information.
I would tend to advise to use a CAD+meshing tool like gmsh or Salomé. The workflow is much more intuitive than to learn the .grd syntax...

HTH,
Matthias
