Multiple Files Open
You can open multiple STAAD input file simultaneously. Each file is displayed on a separate tab across the top of the text editor panel by the filename. The currently selected tab is active and all operations are performed on this file only.
Blocks can be nested. For example, DEFINE MATERIAL START is a block, and each ISOTROPIC material within that block is a sub-block. The current block is indicated by a vertical bar to the right of the commands.
Clicking the minus sign will collapse the block down to the fist command. Once a block is collapsed, a plus sign is displayed and the first command is displayed in a box.
