I use the cladding feature froms its addition in robot and is very usefull.
Today I was designing a rectangular slab with in the cernter a circular hole. I added a rectangular cladding and then a circle: you see on the screen that the circle forms an hole on the cladding. after the calculation if I look the the load ridistribution, i see that the hole is not considered! if I check the reaction the give the same result!
is this a bug or my procedure is worng? PLease find attached the example file.

You didn't add the RSA-file to your question so I hope I did understand your question correctly.
I think you must ad the whole in your cladding as well.
The distribution algorithm is not capable of correct detection of openings that stretch up to the edges of a cladding itself. You should either create two claddings and no opening or reduce its size.

I am having problems with load distribution on the inclined roof, I added a load on the cladding but it is not distributed on the pannels. I put the load distibution in the right direction as seen in the attachement. It is working for the cladding on the columns.
