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

Linking is an amazing useful tool when you are tracking downloads, but it loses it effectivity when you try to use a hanger on a link beam. It would be amazing if you could have a member link to another, and they could be connected through a hanger!

It would help keep track of the file I'm working on to see the header update with the bccx file name. The file name doesn't show in the header until it is re-opened. This becomes more confusing if I open one file called Smith.bccx and save it as J...

Not Enter the Bearing with Clear Span

When using Clear Span length, it would be nice not to have to enter a bearing size. While this seems like it would NOT be a real-world scenario, it is a time saver that I have used in other single member sizing programs. In commercial projects, we...

Job Analysis Summary - Select joists instead of multi-select

When trying to switch members on the Job Analysis Summary screen, the program automatically multi-selects multiple members. This is not typical Windows or computer functionality and is frustrating.
