Add dimensions to openings

While you can show the dimensions of the opening themselves and the report shows the location of the openings, it would be easier to read and follow if either the dimensions to the openings were shown on the layout graphic or we had the ability to...

Add an option to link a hanger

Allow for a hanger to be linked so that you can have the load applied to the supporting member while also be able to select the appropriate hanger if loads change. Currently you can either have a hanger or a link, not both.

allow link and hanger

Add walls to members that can be sent from BC Framer to BC Calc.

Wall design is not enabled in BC Framer, but is in BC Calc. Framer already has tools to input openings quickly, so it would be helpful to take these walls and send them to Calc for tall wall design.

Enable saving custom notes in BC Calc on the member "Notes" tab.

The default notes are helpful, but we should be able to create new notes and save them for future use. Legacy BC Calc 4.x had a folder in ProgramData with text files. See <<1-Notes-Text file path.png>> These notes appeared in the appli...
