Is it possible to reconnect shared lines or members?


It depends on the initial situation. Currently, lines and members can only be rejoined or combined if no other elements are connected to the division nodes. This is illustrated in the attached figure.

To combine the multiply divided member, select the intermediate nodes. Then, click the function "Delete Nodes -> Merge Linked Lines/Members" in the shortcut menu. 
This function is not available for the lower part of the structure because merging would delete the definition node of the connected beam.
