Steel design result from multiple design blocks

Currently, if there are multiple design blocks present in a STAAD model, in the post-processing utilization table, design ratio from the last design block is reported. It is very common to define multiple design blocks with different set of parameters (strength, serviceability or section selection criteria). With current workflow, it is not possible to check ratio from all blocks/maximum ratio considering all blocks in the post-processing table for Indian code, it is limited to AISC 360-16 code only.
My suggestion is to extend this facility to other design codes, specially to IS800:2007 code which is widely used in the industry for steel design.
