Calculate section properties when adding new shape to database

Two things here:
Have the ability for STAAD (in the physical modeler) to calculate the section properties when entering a new shape into an existing database. For example, I'm adding a new hat channel into the AISI cold formed Profiles database. In RAM Elements I would define the width, height, thickness, etc and the program would calculate the section properties.

Second, have the ability to use the section wizard in the physical modeler.

    It is great posting your ideas, they are much appreciated. However, could we ask that you post different ideas as separate posts as it then allows each idea to be taken up separately.
