Problem: The table editing tools in Robot are slow and have poor functionality. Usually it is better to copy the table to Excel and edit it there, but this can cause trouble (example: planar loads on contour becoming planar loads in my experience). Besides, for small changes this should not be neccessary.
Solution: Advanced table editing module or two way link to excel for all tables. Allows quick editing of tables, making changes to the model only when the user clicks apply.
Stories Tables :
1.reduced forces should be given either, by each storie, and cumulative from stories above (same as displacement). these effort to be given at the bottom of the storie.
1.Copying storie from a level to another shoud copy all element belonging to it, especially loads affected to its elements , regardless the way it was defined ( loads on contour , linear loads …)
2.indicating the value of load when draging the mouse over.
Export to RC design :
1.Names assigned manually to elements in RSA should be retrieved when exported to correspondant RC design.
2.adding preference of soil definition and optimisation pattern to be applicated to set of Foundation at once
