Default REQUEST Re: CORNER POSTS

In SuperBeam Steel design we are given 4 load locations but only 2 in Timber design.

If the basics were regularised and we had 4 load locations in Timber too I think this would give us a more logical (? sensible/correct) design for corner and/or multi directional post loads.

Any chances of a mod.?

Apologies for the delayed response: as you will see, I have moved your post to SuperBeam user feedback and requests.

This has been suggested several times over the years and does make sense. The real reason it's never been implemented is that with steel columns, loads coming in on more than one side is quite a common situation, much less so with timber posts. But for consistency I will add it back to the 'to-do' list.
