Show section shape from Section wizard

Hello dev team, As of now, STAAD cannot show the section shape from section wizard . This issue may make the engineer confuse about local axis even we can referent to the (v,u) axis. its will be good if STAAD can show the section shape that customized in section wizard.

    Thank you for posting this idea. Section Wizard has two primary modes, Section Builder and FreeSketch. When a profile is exported as a prismatic section from FreeSketch, then the profile points are used so the shape can be seen. We are looking at other options to provide section properties that would mean extending this functionality in Section Wizard may not be the best use of development effort. What I think could e of more use is to extend the definition of a GENERAL UPT shape to include PROFILE POINTS similar to the prismatic UPT, although only to be used for drawing purposes. Would that be of use?
