I have a railing post with sleeve connected to beam/channel web with plates both sides per design drawing. Graitec generated a detail which is not acceptably, the post runs through top flange. See attached file. To improve this detail I suggest:
A- Sleeve to be connected to web by plate(s), angle(s) or "T" shape.
B-Through bolting option shall be provided.
C-In post dialog box when "Left" or "Right" option is selected the "Post alignment from edge" shall stay active.

It would be good if this connection would allow the "Right" or "Left" option when the sleeve is selected.  Perhaps the reason it is not an option at this time is that there would need to be a means of connecting the sleeve if there was an offset.  A "T", angle, or plate option would take care of connecting the sleeve.  I would like to see this implemented.

Another option that is very needful for handrail connections is to allow the "angle welded" or "angle bolted" connection for the offset handrail posts to not be centered on the handrail posts.  Sometimes, these angles need to weld to the "side" of the posts instead of butting into the face of the post.  This is necessary because sometimes the handrail needs to be offset an exact distance from the toe of the beam or channel it's mounting to and there are no angle sizes to match that exact requirement.  On several platforms I've done, I have to manually add the connection angles.  The angles are welded to the side of the posts instead of welding to the center of the posts.
