Is it possible for the program to create a table which shows the maximum internal force combinations of several members? For example, for the upper chord of a truss and for the struts.

Answer

Yes, it is possible. For this, it is necessary to include the members in a set of members. For continuously connected members, you can use the "Continuous member" type. For other members, use "Group of members." Generally, the distinction is only important for subsequent design in add-on modules.
After creating the sets of members and the structure, you can display the resulting internal forces in the result window "Sets of Members - Internal Forces." Use the table filter to hide the unwanted results.
