For the "Import Support Reactions as Load" feature, I did not find any option to transfer line moments. How can I import the moments mx from a line support as a load?


The load import with the mentioned feature is limited to vertical loads (transfer in 2D structures). If support reactions in other directions are required, they must be transferred manually.

To facilitate the manual import, you can display "Smooth Distribution" for each line instead of the "Actual" support reactions (see the figure). Of course, the finer is the subdivision of the lines, the more exact (more shades) is the result closer to the actual distribution.
