After performing design calcs for an element, a green tick mark means everything is aok. A yellow tick mark usually appears with warnings and no tick when structural capacity is inadequate. Question is what are the structural implications of the design with the yellow tick? does it mean it can be used but one should be aware of the warnings or does one continue tweaking the design until a green tick mark is achieved? Just curious!!
Assuming that you refer to the steel design - red means you exceeded the safety ratio limit ; yellow you exceeded the slenderness limit but you are below the safety ratio limit.

Yes there were. I was wondering why the program does not provide the necessary reinforcement/stirrup arrangements in the design process to cover crackwidth/stirrup spacing/necessary reinforcement to satisfy seismic codes eg. EC8
Try the following:
1. Open the model with results
2. Select a small part of the model around the beam or the column you want to design and save it as a substructure (Geometry > Structure > save as substructure).
3. Export the element to the RC Design module and calculate reinforcement
4. Save the file and send it indicating which beam or column should be investigated.
If the file after compression is still to big select only the beam or the column in point 2.
