Constraint disappears after applying Step (by Moritz Moeller)
Solvespace n00b here:

I create a circle, add a Diameter constraint. Then, with the circle selected, I create a Step Translate group.

This makes the Diameter constraint on the circle disappear. Adding a new constraint is not possible (I get a 'Redundant constraint' error).

How do I change the diameter of a circle (or any parameter of any entity) in a [Step] Translate group?

You don't; step and repeat is parametric. If you go back to the group containing the circle that you stepped, then you can change its diameter there, and all the stepped circles will follow.

If you want a non-parametric "step and repeat", then look at paste transformed.
