Default steel choices does not include angles

Can you please advise if equal and unequal angles can be added to the database file ALLSTEEL.DTA. If it can, what section type should be specified?
Also, in the latest version of Prosteel, there is a bug in that it wont let you copy and paste the first member that is designed.

Default Re: steel choices does not include angles

No, sorry, none of our programs support checking of angle sections and we have no plans to add this. The key issue is torsion - not a factor with short, fairly heavy angles (e.g. supporting soldier bricks over a 900mm wide window) but possibly material on longer or lighter ones.
