I am voting important rather than essential as the origin can be moved in the complex profile.
Although this will upset anything else using that profile - hence the need to duplicate the profile with a different origin.
I am not sure if there is a technical reason that the complex profile origin has to be used rather than the user being able to define the axis position as with a standard beam (column)

I’m not expert in ArchiCAD, so I don’t really see the consequences of duplicating profiles. For me, an IPE300 is unique. I’ve just started last weekend doing some tests with analytical IFC (experimental) and my structural software, but my structural software doesn’t recognise profiles, so I don’t know if this could be a problem with other software, or with SAF.
This is not related to this wish, but, where could I post ”strange things” I’ve seen doing this test. Can I do it here, or do I need to do it through my local distributor?
