STAAD RAM connection design module has two connection design fuction(except gusset).
First, BASIC connection.
Second, SMART connection.
Both function change/correct the values(like dimension, thickness etc..) from given template and also "USER specified connection template"
It is reasonable when engineer does not have any pre-given detail of connection.
However, if engineer have their own detail and if they want to use as they specify.
There's no way to use it(as it originally input) without modifying each connection as user wants.
So I ask you to "add function maintain using the detailed value" as user specifying.(including hauch)
You may refer to below screenshot.
