Lateral deflection optimisation of Shells

Does the crosssection optimisation component in Karamba can only optimise the cross sections from a list based on vertical deflection?

I am looking optimising concrete core wall thickness for a limiting lateral deflection at top most floor of a tower. It seems like setting a number as max displacement in the crosssection optimisation component is not working. Karamba does only recognise vertical deflection of an element for optimisation?
Can anyone confirm this?

Hi, Karamba optimises for maximum overall deflection, not just the vertical deflection.
More information on the component can be read here:
