project Beam summary

A beam summary in the project directory would make a world of difference for review and comparison of design results.  I recommend a description of beam size and specie added.  Beam design is often an iterative process and it is difficult to track.  At this time the software has no way to see what was designed unless the designer opens each design separately. It gets to be a time consuming way to track what was done or not done.   I opt for columns  to call out beam sizes and type.

Just the list of name and type doesn't help much when revising or doing interative designs. It says only what it was named but not what it was.  The building and wood codes are important but could be abbreviated to save column widths.

I like Dan's suggestion - if there is room, it would be nice to see the TL reactions too.
