Hi, my wish is for columns & beams veneer.

Please add:
1. Veneer option for beams for selected sides.
2. Veneer improvement for columns for selected sides.

I am attaching a situation for the specific subject.

Thanks.

Takis.

You should solve these situations by creating custom Profiles for your Columns or Beam and using those.
You can even categorize the various skins/components as Core, Finish or Other so Partial Structure Display works on them.
So I don't think this feature is needed.

Everything may be customized in Archicad.

This customization demands a lot of time and it is not effective at all and it cannot be done in every project.

I believe this tool and its improvements is a must.

Does this option in the column tool help?
Anything that is not a core in the wall composite will wrap around the column.

I precised that snap does not work the turn of the composite column

No it does not work with complex profile columns.
But it does with rectangular and circular columns - with or without veneers.
In the image you showed originally you would just need a stand rectangular concrete column.
