Answer

In Advance Steel there are functions that allow highlighting rapidly the connected objects, by marking them with red. These functions allow:

- Displaying objects connected in the shop;
- Displaying objects connected on the building site;
- Displaying the connection elements.

On the "Grid, section, plate, structural element" toolbar, select the "Sub-Check Connection" flyout.
