How can I select the members that have a certain material?

Answer

For the design of steel cross-sections, it is recommended to only select the members that also have steel as the material. This can be easily controlled in the Views navigator by activating the "Members by Material" option and setting the desired material (see the figure).

Then, you can select these members for design in an add-on module.
