Beam System: "Minimize Number" Layout Rule

Beam System: "Minimize Number" Layout Rule

The current "Fixed Distance" Layout Rule (and "Center" Justification) sometimes results in Joists placed less than half of the spacing from the edges (i.e. one more Joist than is needed):

Beam System - Min Number of Joists Layout Rule (proposed) 2.png

Having this "Fixed Distance (Minimize Number)" option for the Layout Rule (which would set Justification as "Center" and disable it) would replace our current six-step workaround as detailed here. An alternative fix would be Beam System: "Centered Space" Justification option (but would require user review every time geometry changes). This is a repost of an archived idea (see that idea for proposed implementation logic).
