So the Auto Connect feature for truss symbols is really nice, it was something I missed moving over from WYSIWYG.  


I'm building a rig, and using Braceworks for the first time with, and was wondering if there is a way to connect truss together, not at a usual connection point, but with grapples, book hinges, etc.  


I could stack the truss on top or bottom, but it is not exactly the same, and I'm just curious if that math has been worked out yet in the software to account for the truss load deflections when connected like that.

I'm curious about this too.  It seems a useful addition to the insert connection tool would be another option to connect to the side of a truss at an otherwise unconnectable point.

At this time, Braceworks only connects at existing connection points for the truss, so ends and corner points.
