Well I for one hope that you are wrong and this is exactly the case you 
stated of a someone not knowing the software and calling it a bug. 
Obviously we are not discussing a bug here, but if you are correct and 
this is a type of "gymnastics" necessary to apply multiple loads to a 
single beam in this package, you will be stating the case of those that 
"place value on their time" in the thread on Freeware.
