In your collar tie design module, I would suggest that the collar tie be checked as a ceiling joist {LL= 10psf} also or at least have an option for it. I just did a design and didn't realize that the collar tie wasn't checked for ceiling joist loading and had to issue a revision for it. I had 2x8 @ 24"o.c spanning over 20 feet.

Ability to place a triangular load on a floor joist in addition to the uniform for snow loading on decks attached to the house.
